In a culture that is transient the connections between people can weaken a lot. In a simple project, Tim Wray shows us what matters in small towns – sharing hopes, dreams and fears within the community helped Tim and other participants discover their shared values and helped rebuild the connections betweenthem.
The Young Adult Photovoice Project, led by Tim Wray, was funded in part by the Alberta Rural Development Network. Their website has some great information about the Photovoice Project, as well as a Gallery of the photos and stories. There is also a How-To Guide that’s worth checking out if you’re interested in doing a similar project in your community!
