(1 Vote)

(Fort McMurray, AB – Feb. 15, 2019) – The I See You: Sawubona project invites you to immerse yourself in these stories. The project challenges you to see through someone else’s eyes.

The project gives us an opportunity to understand by sharing stories of survivors who have endured discrimination based on their socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, religion, race, disability and other grounds of discrimination. 

Sawubona is a greeting used by the Zulu people, but the term has a deeper meaning. As explained by community leader Orland Bishop, “Sawubona” means to really see each other, to agree to explore the mutual potential for life, and to give each other what is needed for that moment in life to be enhanced. In this way, “Sawubona” is an invitation to participate in each other’s lives.

The video exhibit runs from February 15 until March 15 at MacDonald Island Park in the main concourse. It is free to attend and will be open to the public, Monday to Friday from 2 pm - 8 pm, and on weekends from 11 am – 4:30 pm.
