A unique visual and musical journey of youth narratives of resilience.
Landscape of Hope is a unique, evidence-based intervention that magnifies youth narratives as they pertain to building resilience against racism, discrimination, prejudice and cyber bullying. The digital art initiative is youth-led and designed to empower them with critical digital literacy skills and social media tools to create cutting-edge multimedia performances and installations that describe their experiences with hate, discrimination and cyber bullying.
Concordia researchers involved in the initiative include Vivek Venkatesh, Owen Chapman, Kathryn Urbaniak, Annabelle Brault, Sandra Chang-Kredl, Martin Lalonde, Jason Wallin, Jessie Beier, David Hall.
Freshly returned from their successful world premiere at the Arctic Pride Festival in Tromsø, Norway, the Landscape of Hope team, in partnership with Project Someone, Grimposium, and Unesco chair-prev, held its Canadian premiere on February 20, 2019 at 4TH SPACE.
