Toronto is in the 'Dish With One Spoon Territory’. The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.

Youth in Focus
Our Youth in Focus program provides free, customized workshops for community organizations and youth in the Toronto area. Now offered online, these sessions provide hands-on, photography-based activities that encourage critical thinking about our exhibitions and explorations of image-making and storytelling processes. By engaging with new, young audiences, The Image Centre aims to promote greater inclusivity, equity, and accessibility in a museum context.
To book a workshop, please contact our Outreach Programmer, Bryce Julien, to discuss specific needs for your group: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Covenant House Toronto Collaboration
Through a collaborative partnership with Covenant House Toronto, the Youth in Focus program ran a series of photography and zine-making workshops engaging youth at Covenant House with creative strategies of storytelling. These workshops were incorporated as part of Covenant House’s Rights of Passage program, which attempts to build life skills for youth living in a transitional shelter to prepare them for independent living. We worked closely with two youth from Covenant House to utilize photography as a device for expressing personal narrative; at that basis of each zine are the experiences and perspectives of the youth who created them. Together through discussions of past and present, what could have been and what might be, the youth conceptualized their zines’ shared theme, Old and New of Me.
