Students for Syrian Refugees! A campaign started by Seaquam Secondary's Social Justice 12 and IB Art 11 students. The goals of this project are: to combat negative stigma (e.g. Islamophobia), bring awareness to the events that occurred forcing these children and their families (in most cases) to leave Syria (13.5 million total and counting; 6 million are children), raise money for sustainable living through an art show at the end of the term, and to help give these individuals a voice and platform to be seen. Canada has agreed to sponsor 25,000 refugees; 2,700 of whom are immigrating to the Surrey/Delta area in British Columbia, Canada. Through anonymous portraiture capturing just the eyes of our affiliate volunteers we are using the power of art and photography to transcend cultural barriers, differences, and misrepresestation in hopes of reaching people's inner humanity allowing them to realize that "WE ARE PEOPLE TOO!"
