Art for the Marginalized: Stories from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside

Jenny Hawkinson, TWU alumna

Join our School of the Arts, Media + Culture for an intimate talk with artist Jenny Hawkinson.  A recent graduate of the SAMC Art + Design program, Jenny is now working for Mission Possible in Vancouver's downtown eastside.  Mission Possible (www.mission-possible.ca) seeks to empower artists in that neighbourhood through providing studio space, hosting professional development workshops, and other similar initiatives.  

Jenny will speak about her work with Mission Possible as well as her own public street art, and how she sees it as an extension of her faith practice.  On November 6, come hear more about the inspiring work of artists like Jenny and their passion for making art accessible--particularly for the "marginalized."
