Donna Anandakumar, a Grade 12 student expressed her personal experience with diversity in Canada through her photograph, “Divisions Destroyed”. Ms. Anandakumar said that her inspiration came while watching a cultural dance show at a local festival: “Not only is Toronto home to countless ethnic groups, various religions and sexualities, but it proudly produces grand displays showcasing the identities of its citizens year-round”.
In its inaugural year, the Passages Canada Imagine Culture Photo Contest encouraged youth ages 5 to 29 across Canada to explore issues of culture, identity, and immigration through photography. Work was juried by an esteemed panel from Passages Canada and The Canadian Encyclopedia.
Passages Canada is a national storytelling program of Historica Canada that nurtures cross-cultural dialogue in Canadian communities. Our volunteer speakers share their personal experiences of identity, culture and immigration with groups of all ages. Passages Canada is generously funded by TD Bank Group and Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
Historica Canada is the country’s largest organization dedicated to enhancing awareness of Canada’s history and citizenship.
