"Why Am I So Poor" Youth Poverty Series In 2011, the Camden File Project is launching a new salon series with a focus on youth poverty in Toronto. The series will bring together Toronto's most eminent young poets, filmmakers, photographers and writers to shed light on the rising social crises in urban communities across Toronto.
Camden File Project The Camden File Project is a youth-led policy think tank. Camden File deploys culture via creative mediums of expression including film, photography and poetry to uncork socio-political discourse and influence public policy. CFP is part of Salon Camden Centre for Urban Dialogue (saloncamden.com), which promotes urban discourse via intimate gatherings and other expressive platforms on subjects spanning art, culture, socio-economic issues, geopolitics and philosophy.
