girls eye view

 

This year's Girls Eye View program, led by Eyebeam Alum Tali Hinkis (LoVid) in partnership with Good Shepherd services has been rocking along! We have challenged young women to express their ideas through visual language exercises, sharing questions and statements online through Facebook, and focusing on transforming words into meaningful images in digital messages and back again. What follows is a visual journey through the past few weeks with our group:

 

We worked together to identify one single word that is meaningful to us. After discussing the meaning of each word, we talked about how that meaning could be represented visually. We chose words like: FREEDOM, FEARLESS, LIFE, PASSION, LOVE and DEATH.

Eyebeam is is pleased to announce this year's Girls Eye View program, which will feature a new collaboration with young women from Good Shepherd Services' residential program. Youth participants will collaborate with artist and Eyebeam alum Tali Hinkis (LoVid) in an eight-week program where they will draw on topics they are exploring through their relationship with Good Shepherd—such as sanctuary, self, loss, and future—to reimagine the classic PSA by creating animated GIFs made up of stylized text that transforms to tell a story.

This year's Girls Eye View program, features a new collaboration with young women from Euphrasian Residence, a Good Shepherd Services' residential program.

Youth participants collaborated with artist and Eyebeam Alum Tali Hinkis (LoVid) in an eight-week program where they drew on personal topics and themes explored during their time spent at Euphraisan Residence; such as safety, emotion, loss, and future. These words were a starting point for creating short animations reflecting a personal definition of a word. This process helped the youth integrate the meaning of the words derived from the Sanctuary Model, into their lives and relationships with themselves and their community.
