ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
In August 2016, the very first Flaunt It Open Photoshoot was organized at Osgoode Hall Law School's Junior Commons Room in collaboration with Success Beyond Limits Summer Program. The Executive Director, Sariena Luy, was given $150 from RBC to "make a difference."
The goal was to create a space that was accessible to be a part of the #FlauntItFriday campaigns. It was also the first step to the dream of fundraising for an art exhibition where eventually the Flaunt It team can showcase all the portraits and stories of women that they have shot, especially within the Jane-Finch community.
It has been three years since then, & we are excited to be funded by the City of Toronto's "Community Events Grant" to make the dream a reality.
In the rising waves of feminist movements and their abilities to empower women in every capacity, we are thankful for the support people, organizations, and institutions are giving to uplift women. However, let us ensure that support continues to grow, and the efforts to be, included, treated fairly, equitably, & respectfully in all areas of life expand positively too.
The Flaunt It Movement is dedicated to promoting love, appreciation and confidence, but it is an interdependent effort.
Let's Love More is our message that asks every one to reflect on being able to love themselves and the people around them. It is being apologetic and understanding that we may not be perfect, but every piece of our individuality is beautiful & worthy.
And the beauty in us all grows through the encouragement and kindness we give & receive.
Let us not be afraid to smile.
Let us not be afraid to give a compliment.
Let us not be afraid to step out of our comfort zones
Let us not be afraid to fall in love with the woman in the mirror.
Let us be brave, together.
We invite you to not only love more,
but to love better.
