In late 2023, we ran a video poetry program with immigrant and refugee youth in Douglas College's Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada program.

In this in-person program, new Canadians and program staff gathered with Reel Youth facilitators, where they were introduced to principles of filmmaking, and created
these short video poems about issues they were passionate about as well as experiences as newcomers and in the LINC Engage program.

In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world—a just humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear. A community where no one is exiled or silenced because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability. We believe in the power of storytelling to make connections across difference.
