Event Description

What's your vibe? This was the question that Jamaican-Canadian photographer, Nathan Smith, asked the youth group, Melanin Magic, during a student-led photo shoot one sunny afternoon in May. In asking this question, the students were posed with the challenge to capture how they were feeling on that day, outside their classroom walls as they looked towards a post-pandemic world. What emerged from these self-directed portraits was their desire to be untethered and fully in the moment of who they were, and who they dream to be.
