FeFF Presents :

My Life, My Community, My Ontario

in partnership with White Pines CVS

October 2017:  The Female Eye Film Festival collaborated with students of White Pines Collegiate and Vocational school in Sault Ste. Marie to create an integrated arts project – My Life, My Community, My Ontario – supported by Ontario Arts Council Creative Engagement Fund, It’s Never Okay, and the Canada Council for the Arts, Community Collaboration Project Grant.  In partnership with Garden River First Nations, Batchewana First Nations and Women in Crisis Algoma, My Life, My Community, My Ontario, addresses sexual violence and harassment against Indigenous women in Ontario. Native and non-Native female students aged 13 – 17 yrs.  worked with artists, and engaged with sexual assault counsellors, and elders from the community in an experiential week long integrated arts workshop whereby the students and community partners were actively involved in soap stone carving, mask making and creative movement, which was filmed and photographed.
