  • Tin Can Telephone: A Community Film Project

    Tin Can Telephone is a celebration of neighborhourhood creativity and connectivity in challenging times.

    Images were created by 65 individuals over the span of two months (January 1 to February 28, 2021) in the Grandview-Woodland Neighbourhood on the traditional, unceded homeland of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

    Each participant or participating family selected a date and then created one image or 5 seconds of video that in some way represented Grandview-Woodland on that day. Together they become a cinematic chain letter reflecting on everyday local life during a global pandemic.

    Project made possible by The Vancouver Foundation's Small Neighbourhood Grants program with creative support from EPFC North.
