Interactive Youth Session with Ossie Michelin

We had an awesome afternoon of sharing with Labrador Artist Role Model
Ossie Michelin who is freelance journalist/photographer/filmmaker. You can check out his work at http://www.osmich.ca

Ossie also shared some photography techniques and we had fun making some memes

As with all of our sessions, we incorporated a health theme and today we talked about gender fluidity and sexuality. This added to the great conversation and made for some funny memes

Thanks so much to the youth who came, everyone who supported and especially Ossie for spending some of his holiday home time with us.
