OXFAM'S 'UP FOR DEBATE' CAMPAIGN

As the Canadian federal election was underway in 2015, certain issues relating to women's rights were not being discussed. Oxfam's 'Up for Debate' campaign was a nation-wide movement for gender justice and equality, and a call for all political parties to make meaningful commitments to change women’s lives for the better. 

The cannon is an iconic symbol for the University of Guelph. It is painted by students, clubs, faculty and other members of the university almost every night of the year. Painting is in high demand, as students have been known to guard the cannon in -25 degree weather just so that their colours are shown the following morning. Cannon Chroma gives just a glimpse of the cannon's many shades, and certainly shows the diverse interests on campus. In total, over 100 cannon pictures were taken throughout the school year in order to create this video.

Although primary school is free in Kenya, many children do not attend school because they do not have enough food to eat at home, they are unhealthy, and/or they live in poor socio-economic conditions, among other challenges. The Bwaliro village in Western Kenya is not immune to these challenges, and this has resulted in a situation of impoverishment within the community. To address the issue of both child attendance and malnourishment, there has been a school-feeding and agroforestry program set up at the local Bwaliro Primary School.
