The program was initially created to combat the increasing violence in Toronto and to offer an alternative option for youth wanting to pursue art. Since its inception the program has provided over a hundred youth with jobs, cameras and skills of lasting value. Shoot for Peace has also been recognized internationally by Buzzfeed, Upworthyand CNN. Through his photography Yasin has been recognized by the National Geographic and has shot campaigns for brands such as Nike, Google and The Toronto Raptors.

Landscape Time and Place
April will speak about three bodies of work that explore the ideas of long-term observation and recording. Through her work in both photography and video she explores notions of the natural environment and notions of our relationship to green spaces.
As a lens-based artist and teacher, April has mined the distinctions between personal and public sites through film, video, photography, and installation. A dedicated environmentalist she is interested in our relationship to wilderness in urban culture, land stewardship, and sustainability.
For all IBPOC Photo students:
Let’s gather! Talk about Photo! Share our experiences! Plan for ways to make our IBPOCness shine!

Brendan George Ko is a visual storyteller that works in photography, video, installation, text, and sound. His work is about conveying a sense of experience through storytelling, and he describes the image as supplementary to the story it represents. Ko breaks traditional delineations in the medium by blurring the spaces between commercial, fine-art and documentary/photojournalistic works. Ko received his BFA from OCAD in 2010 where he majored in Photography, and practiced sculpture and curation. During his time in the Masters in Visual Arts program at the University of Toronto his practice shifted to include video and sound.
Ko has been active as a freelance photographer since he was an Undergraduate student. In addition to his editorial photography- which has appeared in numerous publications such as The New Yorker, New York Times, Vogue and Flux magazines, to name a few, he maintains an active artistic practice. His most recent solo exhibitions were Moemoea at the CONTACT Gallery and We Soon Be Nigh! At LE Gallery.
