Through the Lens: A Photographic Exploration of Exclusion, Inclusion and Belonging in the Childcare System
March 25 - May 1, 2023
The City of New Westminster, Art Services Department and Pacific Immigrant Resources Society (PIRS) are excited to announce Through the Lens: A Photographic Exploration of Inclusion, Exclusion and Belonging in the Childcare System opening Saturday, March 25, 2023 at the Anvil Centre.
Through the Lens is a photographic journey created by participants of the “Building A Child Care System That Works for Immigrant and Refugee Women” project. On this journey, they explore their experiences of exclusion, inclusion, and belonging in the childcare system. These photographs aim to raise awareness about the intersectional access barriers immigrant women face, and propose solutions to ensure an equitable and inclusive approach to building a childcare system. Touching on stories of discrimination, isolation, resilience, but also joy and empowerment, this photographic exhibition is an open window to connect with community members impacted by the issue and decision makers driving change in the childcare sector.
Opening Reception March 25, 2023 1:00pm – 3:00pm
