JANVIER YOUTH SHOWCASE COMMUNITY STRENGTHS

In their photo exhibit “We are Resilient,” Janvier youth from Northern Alberta highlight the positive in the Chipewyan Prairie Dene First Nation community; showing the strength of community, nature, sports, and tradition. The youth and youth workers from the Sekweha Youth Centre took the images as a way to spark conversation on sustaining and developing activities and actions that build on the positive aspects of their community. The workshop ran as part of the ResiliencebyDesign Lab’s “Youth Voices Rising” project: https://www.resiliencebydesign.com/yvr
