ABCD (Arts-Based Community Development)
Growing out of the Arts & Health Initiative started in 2008, Arts Based Community Development (ABCD) is an ongoing series of partnerships that use the arts as a resource for service delivery. Past programs have partnered with the John Howard Society, Immigrant Welcome Centre, Family Services, the Women's Centre, Aids Vancouver Island, Stroke Recovery Association, amongst others. The programs aim to contribute positively to the economic, cultural and social development of Campbell River (i.e., its overall community "health").

Building upon the Resiliency Toolkit, two artists, Jill Banting and Sarah Kerr collaborated with students at Equinox Alternate at Robron Centre to create a photo/ voice installation- a resiliency wall. Working with one classroom, instead of the three in our original proposal, this six week project integrated the resiliency curriculum through a participatory photographic process.
Using digital cameras, students explored the school environment as a site for art making. Capturing imagery and using narrative to uncover stories of place, the students developed their personal voices through storytelling. Using dialogue, the artists and teachers worked together with the students to develop image making and writing abilities by identifying key themes that were emerging in their work.
Building resiliency through the process, the group explored themes of belonging, while learning skills in digital photography, writing and visual analysis. As the students work emerged, the images where put on display in the classroom and shared with other students and staff. The project culminated with a series of group dialogues about the students work, followed by the installation of the photovoice project onto the resiliency wall. Click here to view the video.
