Picture This: Life as a parent of children with FASD
September 16, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-4
Join us to view the 30 minute Picture This documentary (information below) along with a live discussion panel with the photo voice participants.
In 2007, five women participated in a photo voice project entitled, “Picture This: Life as a Parent of Children with FASD”. The women used cameras and engaged in group discussion to describe their experiences of parenting children with FASD through pictures and narratives. The project was transformed into a photo exhibit, podcast and DVD film production. The film takes real emotions formerly described by intellect or words and turns them into powerful symbols and metaphors. Participation in the project had a lasting impact on each mother and their relationships with one another. With support from FASDONE the film was recently translated into Oji-Cree. On September 16, 2020 we will present the translated video and bring together some of the mothers, as well as the translator, to talk about their experiences.
This event is hosted in partnership with FASDONE Network and the Ontario Network of CAPC/CPNP project
