This semester has been spent volunteering at the YMCA in Point St. Charles each Saturday. I have been responsible for facilitating and co-facilitating workshops with youth ages 13-17 in various areas such as Arts & Crafts, Theatre and Stop Motion. One Saturday I got the opportunity to lead a crafting session.

The Living Scrapbook is an innovative, artistic form I’ve been developing, a multimedia project that would hopefully involve, represent and serve the community. The idea came as I explored Pointe-St-Charles, recorded my impressions of the neighborhood and gathered as many photographs, sounds, quotes, painting and maps as I could find.

My Individual Impressions project has two parts. The first past is a small compilation of impressions of Pointe St-Charles from inside and out; a collection of quotes about the neighbourhood from people who live within the neighbourhood and from people in my own class who are studying the neighbourhood from without.
