Framing Our Future Project
The Framing Our Future project was born from the merging of two fundamental ideals. First, to reach a goal we must be able to imagine ourselves there. Second, we are all driven by a need for belonging and a true connection to our community.
In the fall of 2017 sixteen young adults with developmental disabilities worked with Fairbanks Resource Agency and photographer Kari Orvik to visualize their dreams. Through the photographs, they share their hopes for the future. From storm chaser to chef, they all envision a life that allows them to make a contribution.
We believe the project provides a foundation for creating a community where every ability belongs and we are all able to live our dreams. Fairbanks Resource Agency joins our many supporters in pursuing this future.
Kari Orvik is a nationally recognized photographer who lives and works in San Francisco. Her work, which explores ideas of commemoration and connection to place, has been shown at the Berkeley Art Museum, SomArts and the Headlands Center for the Arts, and is featured on the covers of Popular Photography and San Francisco Magazine.
