What a privilege to witness and share the experiences of these brave individuals – thanks to Ankors West, Cheryl Dowden, Alex Sherstobitoff, Paul Burkhart and the Nelson Police for bringing this project to life and to Tyler Harper at the Nelson Star News for helping us amplify their voices. More to come in this series. Next up, service providers speak to their experience of the opioid crisis. See the videos here: Beyond Stigma Video Series
Happy International Women’s Day! Here’s a video produced by TECK to celebrate the amazing women who work there. Was fun to have a small part in the creation of this video.
Soon, they will release two other profile videos that feature the stories of a couple women seen in this IWD video that I worked alongside Jason Mannings to capture.
For the past few months, I’ve had the honour of working on a project with Kootenay Lake School District to capture the stories of Indigenous Elders in the region. The final videos will be shared with students across the school district, as aboriginal education further integrates into the curriculum. Several students from South Nelson Elementary, Adam Roberts Elementary and Prince Charles Secondary School students participated in this project by drawing pictures in response to the Elders’ stories. Ben Euerby created the original score of these videos, all 20-30 minutes in length. Amy Bohigian shot, directed and edited the videos.
