BASIC INCOME MANITOBA INVITES YOU
HUMANS OF BASIC INCOME – a portrait series by
photographer Jessie Golem.
Jessie Golem believes in building a better world. She’s a classically trained pianist and piano teacher, a photographer and community activist. In 2018, Jessie was one of 1,000 Hamiltonians accepted onto the Ontario Basic Income Pilot project. When that government research project was suddenly cancelled last summer, Jessie took action. She conceived and launched Humans of Basic Income, a portrait series that amplified the stories of other basic income participants whose lives had been changed by the program. Jessie’s portraits presented powerful images of real people who felt they had no voice. Jessie’s photography enabled basic income participants to share their stories in a way that was empowering and built public understanding about a critical social policy option. Come listen to Jessie’s story, view her portraits and share your views on Basic Income and the artist as social visionary.
