Esker Foundation opens a new space on the 4th floor called “Bridge: a space dedicated to young people.” The first two exhibitions to be presented in this space are: “Thinking of You” and “Unmasking Imagination.”

“Thinking of You” explores writing, connection and memory through the process of making postcards for friends and family. Led by Yolkless Press, youth artists synthesized text and images to create two-colour Risograph prints- a hybrid digital and analogue printing method that can be described as “silkscreen meets photocopier.”

For “Unmasking Imagination,” over thirty children participated in Esker’s inaugural spring break art camps, and some of their artwork is displayed in “Bridge” alongside their portraits photographed by Katie Green, a local artist who collaboratively developed this workshop with YW Calgary’s Mindful Moments program.
