Linda Ozromano is an emerging photographer, first generation Turkish-Canadian based in Edmonton, and a 2017 recipient of the Edmonton Arts Council’s Cultural Diversity in the Arts Project Grant.
The collaboration involves many other visual artists, storytellers, workshop facilitators and art therapists coming from diverse diaspora backgrounds. The concepts explored throughout the show are highly related to the narratives of many diaspora communities as well as others identifying with intersectional identities:
- Hyphenated identity
- Sense of home and belonging
- Cultural displacement
- Ancestral grief and loss
- Healing through art and storytelling
There is an opening reception, panel discussion, presentations, storytelling workshop, art therapy workshop and much more happening throughout February 15-24.
The event organizers are also looking for volunteers as well as volunteer photographers and videographers who would like to collaborate and participate in the events.·•
