co-op youth story project: travelling art show
The United Nations has declared 2012 The Year of Co-operatives and to help celebrate, the British Columbia Co-operative Association (BCCA) and The Youth Excellence Society (The YES) invited young people from around British Columbia to create art about a local co-operative for the Co-op Youth Story Project travelling art show.
The youth, aged 13-25, interviewed co-op members, founders, staff and community members, and have turned these 12 stories into works of art, including one about Modo!
The group art show is now on tour, making stops inNelson (October 18-21), Vancouver (November 7-9) and Duncan (November 29-December 1). Modo is proud to sponsor the project with carsharing credits covering the full tour.
At the opening for each stop, each young artist will present his or her piece and share about the experience of discovering a co-op story.
