Shawk Alani, Featured by the CBC
Current student Shawk Alani is making GLS proud once again. She has been featured by the CBC as a result of her amazing community involment, this time giving voices to Syrian children new to Vancouver. Tonight marks the opening of her gallery show Capturing Our Stories: An Exhibition of Syrian Children's Photography.
The photography collection is the result of The Photography Summer School, a series of workshops that Alani organised which gave Syrian children who have recently arrived in Canada the opportunity to explore the use of cameras and visual arts to represent stories of their lives and experiences.
The exhibition will be ongoing and open to the public at SFU's Interurban Gallery from September 1 to 10.
