Tell the story about you and your community – in photography
“This is Who We Are”
That statement is important for everyone, and people in different parts of the world will respond to it differently. Being a Canadian, like being a Scot, is related to family, the place you live and your dreams.
The connection between Scotland and its diaspora has never been properly articulated. There are huge, and potentially far-sustaining opportunities to look out through culture and learning to our far-flung Scottish family and other interested groups.
There are approximately 1,000 places in Canada that derive their names from Scottish origins. There is a potential affinity between these communities that extends beyond name alone. We propose to launch a series of conversations – community to community, globally– via the bridge of digital photography. This will be achieved through an exchange of images which when combined will make a compelling statement of who we are, wherever we are.
