Sixteen students representing three secondary schools showcased their compelling photography artwork at the 2019 Flash Forward Incubator program in April.
Students explored the theme of boundaries – real or imagined – focusing on the role and meaning they play in our world today. After creating their final images, student works were exhibited in the Boundaries Exhibition at Roundhouse Community Arts Centre in Yaletown.
The Flash Forward Incubator is designed to give students early recognition in their careers as artists and to support educators in their effort to offer hands-on learning experiences.
