A few days back you met Matt, now meet his fellow Canadian, Elia Saikaly…
What has been your favourite photography project/job/experience?
My favourite project experience is actually a tie. It’s a toss up between orchestrating an interactive learning experience for 130 schools on a journey to the top of the world – Mt. Everest where students followed the experience in real-time from their classrooms via social media and interactive technology that empowered them as change-makers in the world. The 2nd was an experiential learning expedition called the “The Garnier FindingLife Expeditions to Africa” where I facilitated an experience that saw 6 high school students travel outside of their lives in North America where they took part in a classroom building campaign and mountain climbing fundraiser in Kenya. They built 2 classrooms, climbed Mt. Kenya and the entire journey was broadcast in real-time to thousands of students across Canada.
