For our second SFU Public Square Community Summit, we explored issues regarding BC's economic future. Faced with an increasingly competitive global economy, it is more important than ever that British Columbians find ways to work together on a common agenda for promoting the well-being of the province and its citizens. This Community Summit invited participation from residents across the province to discuss British Columbia’s economic future.
We Are BC is a crowd-sourced, user-generated video portrait on our province’s economic life edited and directed by Sarah Van Borek. Throughout the summer of 2013, BC residents submitted 30-second, unedited clips which Sarah brought together to tell a collage of stories, documenting the realities of our provincial economy from the perspective of the very people who drive it. We Are BC premiered at the Orpheum theatre on October 3, 2013 to kick off a talk by political economist Robert Reich.
