Relationships Matter showcases a collection of photographs taken by youth who have ‘aged out’ of care in the Greater Vancouver area.
On Monday, December 18, the Roundhouse Community Centre will host a photo exhibition entitled Relationships Matter. The exhibit will showcase a collection of photography taken by Vancouver youth who have ‘aged out’ of care. The photography projects aims to shed light on the importance of supportive relationships in the lives of young people from care.
The collaborative project is led McGill University PhD candidate Melanie Doucet, who studies the social and health services that youth receive from Canada’s Child Protection System. Fostering Change and the Vancouver Foundation are both partners.
Ultimately, the project aims to open a dialogue about maintaining relationships within the Child Protection System and the struggles youth face after ‘aging out’ of it.
