Local photographer, Sarah Kerr, invites you to a presentation and slideshow about her recent visit to India.
On Thursday, Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Freakin Coffeshop, Sarah Kerr will share her experiences, photos and short videos with you of her recent three-month stay in India.
Kerr will talk about her volunteer experience with Fertile Ground, a local non-profit society that works in Assam, India to promote sustainable agriculture. For one month she focused her efforts working with The Kids to Kids Project by teaching photography to 80 children.
The intention behind the Kids To Kids Project is to raise awareness in the young generation in both Assamese and Canadian cultures about the universal need for sustainability on a worldwide level. The photos taken by children were made into colorful collages and these will be on display.
From teaching in Assam, to the spice market in Delhi, to tasting a variety of chai in Darjeeling, Kerr’s presentation will take us on a wonderful journey for the heart, eyes and ears. If a photograph catches you eye during the evening, there will be an opportunity to order prints in various sizes.
Freakin Coffeshop is located at 106-2456 Rosewall Cres. in Courtenay.
