Perspective / by Amanta Scott

No two people see anything exactly the same way.

We can both be looking at the same thing and we'll still see something different.

We all have different experiences, and our responses will differ; our beliefs, interpretations and understandings will differ.

Even our own two eyes perceive the world around us from different angles.

When we can learn to respect this, we hold the key to peace.

Perspective, belief and choice: the essence of Parallel Lines.

This multifaceted interactive art exhibition is coupled with intercultural workshops directed by Amanta Scott for youth, adults and seniors in the communities, schools, museums and art galleries.

This recent series of workshops involved participants of all ages and backgrounds from Canadian Mental Health Association, Cochrane-Temiskaming Branch; Beaverhouse First Nation; and Kirkland Lake District Composite School.
