A young woman from Woodbridge has won third place in Passages Canada’s Imagine Culture Photo Contest.
Sabrina Citta placed third in the TD Culture Builder category for her piece entitled “Tombola,“ expressing inter-generational culture and tradition sharing. The piece depicts three generations of Ms. Citta’s family playing Tombola, which she explains in her artist statement: “My maternal grandparents immigrated to Canada from Italy. They endured many struggles following their arrival as most immigrants do. At times, in an effort to add levity to their difficult days, they would play the Italian game of Tombola – a Bingo-type game.”
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.
