Seen and Heard is a collaboration between Deer Crossing the Art Farm and Youth Voices, an initiative of the BC Family Justice Innovation Lab. We believe that if you are a child or youth experiencing separation or divorce, you have the right to be seen and heard – by your parents, your aunts and uncles, your grandparents, your friends, and ALSO by lawyers, judges, mediators, counsellors and any of the myriad professional roles that make up the Family Justice system.
We have been designing and developing a website and a mobile art installation to provide a platform for our youths stories, ideas, and visions for the future. We want to increase the opportunities for children and youth to express their voices both at home and in the family justice system.
Launch: May 25th – 28th 2023Plaza in front of Vancouver Art Gallery (Georgia Street)
