Eddy Charlie

 

Eddie Charlie

 

"My name is Eddy Charlie and I am a survivor of the Kuper Island Residential School. I quit drinking about 25 years ago, and for the first time, I had an opportunity to look at that past that I walked, and I tried to start understanding why I changed and how the effects of residential schools changed my family members and the people in my community."

 

My community will look like listening to survivors of residential schools. It will look like accountability.

My Favourite Tree - Ana W.

 

My Favourite Tree

 

I pass by this tree every day but this particular contrast of colour made me stop a few days into 2020. Or maybe it was the juxtaposition of light and dark, fear and hope, despair and beauty. Regardless, here's to hoping by 2030 my favourite tree still stands.

Waves crashing over the Erieau pier. Rising water levels combined with stronger storms will likely cause more shoreline erosion through the year 2030.

Daniel Sullivan - Forest Green

Deforestation seeks to remove the lush greenery that surrounds our communities. In 10 years’ time, I hope to continue capturing their essence.
