This exhibition entitled Capture and Confront showcases photography done by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) youth participating in the Photovoice Project. The Photovoice Project is an initiative of a larger project, the Concentric Circles of Care, which aims to increase equity, social inclusion, and cohesion for BIPOC residents in various parts of the city of Ottawa. 

The Photovoice Project was designed to empower and amplify the voices of BIPOC youth through the transformative art of photography. This project encompasses a multifaceted approach to community engagement, skill development, and youth narratives, with a central focus on addressing health disparities and social justice issues within BIPOC communities. Approximately 55 BIPOC youths across four diverse communities were recruited to engage in photography training where they captured their neighborhoods using the skills learned in the program. 

This exhibition gives the audience a chance to see the world through the eyes of the BIPOC youth participants. The main partners in this project include Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre, Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre, Lowertown Community Resource Centre, and the Sandy Hill Community Centre.  

Participating artists include: Aron Mehari, Alexandra Hyatt, Doretta Soraya Ndayiragije, Olantu Nini, Samuel Nkongolo, Prudence Marchand, Felicity Marchand, Aseoluwa Badmus, Araoluwa Badmus, Sirine Cherkaoui, Shahed Alkadour, Salma Safoine, Daniella Talombo Yaba, Nyakuach Wal, Adam Safoine, Mohammed Safoine, Meron Adan, Rayan Ahmed, Thabo Adonis Ndayiragije, Prunelle Amian, Maribely Louidor, Wilson Junior Moise, Gabriel Miracle Ndayiragije, Alexander Mehertab, Rosaily Louidor
