Future Visions 10
Program for at-risk youth
October 15 - November 2nd, 2012
at FAVA (Exhibition Suite)
Tim Folkman + Guest Instructors
Future Visions is a long-standing program at FAVA facilitated by Tim Folkmann with Edmonton’s inner city youth. Over a period of three weeks youth take part in a Video Production Intensive with various artist-mentors and learn the skills to create their own short, personal videos that are fearless and insightful. Now in its tenth successful year, Future Visions is a unique opportunity to support the development of the individual voices of these students through the media arts.
This program is made possible by the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

Kind Campaign is an internationally recognized movement, documentary and school program based upon the powerful belief in KINDness that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl "crime."
What is kind campaign?
In February 2009, while attending Pepperdine University, two young girls recognized a problem and decided to do something about it. Laura Parsekian and Molly Thompson, both affected by female bullying, decided to create a documentary and non-profit that would ultimately change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people across America. The girls have gone on three national tours, spreading their school assembly program and documentary film in hundreds of schools and communities across the country.
