Urban change brings new and refreshing voices to our cities, and opens up opportunities to pursue sustainability and improvements to many peoples’ well-being and quality of life. At the same time, urban change can underline the divergent ways in which people experience the city.
Documenting Downtown Change is a photo-voice exhibition that shares moments in a changing Downtown Kitchener through the eyes of community members. Photos were captured by those who live, work, connect, or access goods and services in the downtown core, and depict spaces of connection and division. A deeper look at everyday places highlights the social distance that of exists between people who inhabit the same physical space.
Join the team behind the project on November 1, 2017 as they lead us in a community discussion on what downtown change means to you, and how social media plays a role in this change.
Admission: Pay What You Can (PWYC), with a suggested donation of $10.
