The Artful Me Selfie Photo Project

About the Program

The eye of the camera looks out into the world, but self-portraiture is a mirror that turns the lens back around onto oneself. Young people are no strangers to selfies, but a DSLR camera can sometimes be an inaccessible foreign object. Diana Nazareth will be hosting online and in-person photography workshops for kids aged 9 to 14, encouraging them to think outside the box to take self-portraits without showing their faces, while incorporating elements of their identity, culture, and interests. The images will be displayed at Toronto Public Library’s Scarborough Civic Centre Branch branch and in an online exhibition during the Ontario Culture Days festival.


These programs would not be possible without the support of the Government of Canada, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Province of Ontario, the Ontario Arts Council, the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund and the Toronto Arts Council.

The Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund is a program of the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, administered by the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund Corporation.
