Men's Voices "Into the Light" Documentary
Join us for an online viewing of the documentary aired by Telus Vancouver about the creation of the Men's Voices coffee table book. The Men’s Voices photo book is a soul-driven photographic exploration of the lived experience of persevering in the face of adversity. With Men’s Voices, we make space to honour the strength and also the vulnerability of our men in each of their unique journeys. This photo book showcases fourteen men representing their resiliencies along with quotations about how they overcame their greatest challenges and the gifts they utilized to grow. Telus Vancouver produced this series into a documentary “Into the Light” which deepens the perspective on men's mental health, and Michelle's healing personally through art therapy and community fundraising.
