Community-University Research Alliances
The Representing Kamloops Project is part of a larger Community-University Research Alliance exploring the Cultural Future of Small Cities. We are interested in issues of mediation and documentation; in particular how Kamloops as a small city represents itself. In much of the promotional literature, for example, Kamloops is touted as "the tournament capital of Canada," owing to the many competitions that have taken place in sports and other activities provincially, nationally and internationally... These official representations of place tell only part of the story; they leave out a more vernacular sense of personal place; how individuals represent their individual experiences, their individual stories of attachment to and detachment from Kamloops. We are seeking to document (visually and verbally) this community sense of place.
