Voice of Immigrant Women exhibition at Red Deer College

The voices of immigrant women in Central Alberta is the focus of an exhibition at Red Deer College.

A reception for the Photovoice exhibition Making a Life in Central Alberta: Voices of Immigrant Women will be at 5 p.m. Friday, April 6 at the RDC Library.

The exhibition is part of a three-year research project, Making Life Easier: A Participatory Assessment of Services for Immigrant Women in Central Alberta.

Sociology instructors Dr. Choon-Lee Chai and Dr. Krista Robson are leading the project, which assesses settlement programs and services for immigrant women in the area.

Women participating in the research shared their experience through an activity called Photovoice, where they captured photographs to represent important aspects of their settlement experiences.

They then took part in interviews where they talked about the photographs and told their stories of settling in Central Alberta. The photographs and interviews were completed between 2016 and 2017.
