LOVE Exhibit

LOVE overcomes violence through photography at new exhibit at the Glen site

The RBC Art and Heritage Centre of the McGill University Health Centre is proud to announce the launch of their latest exhibit at the Glen site: an insightful look at overcoming teen bullying and violence through photography.

LOVE, which stands for "Leave Out Violence", is an non-profit organization whose vision is to inspire youth to build a society free of fear and violence. A selection of photographs taken by adolescent participants in the LOVE program will be on display in the Glen site cafeteria, beginning today.

The powerful photography featured in this collection, which range in emotions and themes, is one of the many ways that LOVE encourages youth who have been challenged by violence to build the necessary skills and confidence to change their lives and communities.

The vernissage saw a gathering of people to celebrate the launch of this exhibit, including RBC spokesperson and Paralympian Benoit St-Amand and Pierre G. Couture, Executive Director of LOVE Quebec, who spoke to the importance of youth engagement and the LOVE project’s achievements within the community.

The exhibit is located in the Cafeteria at the MUHC Glen site (Blocks C-D, Level S1) and will remain on display until the end of May.
