Our Process

Colorful Linear Business Process Graph -2.png

With each participant we will enact 4 steps with the goal of creating a space for internal reflection and open discussion. Step one will be Discovery, in which our team meets an outstanding community member and inquires towards their “why”. Why they do what they do, and what it means to them. Step two will be Ideate, where intergenerational participants will venture to the projects site. New perspectives on the creative works will be the key to discovering how each one of us can emulate an aspect of the project in our lives. Step three is Execute, where the project and our discoveries will be showcased to the public via a salon-styled gathering. The fourth and final step is Reflect,  where our team will reflect on the connections between the unique projects, global issues, and how our perspectives have shifted after this experience. Through these steps we will investigate what co-creation can offer, and how each of us can seek it. We will consider age-accompanied isolation, growth-stunting routine, as well as how to invite innovation without neglecting the past. Our goal with Project Productive Disruption is not only to highlight the creation of art, but to engage in reciprocal learning between our team, the audience, and our documentary subjects.

As founder, I'm deeply honoured to mark VACS' 10th anniversary! Over the past decade, I've witnessed a remarkable exchange of knowledge and creative exploration within our community. The diverse perspectives of our collaborators have been instrumental in shaping our collective understanding and fostering a vibrant environment for lifelong learning. I'm eager to continue exploring potential connections between my work and everyone's interests.

Liv Ward

Hello! My name is Liv Ward, and I am this summer’s multimedia writer at VACS! This coming fall I will begin my fourth year at UBC where I study psychology and English literature. I am constantly seeking new stories I can hear or tell, so I am thrilled to be at VACS. When I’m not working I am usually nerd-ing out at a comic-book store or at the movie theatre.

Within community-based digital storytelling projects, a fundamental question remains unanswered: Where are the stories and reflections of those who initiate, facilitate, and direct these community-based multiliteracies and digital media projects?

Coming Soon
