The ‘Everyday Olympian’
The ‘Everyday Olympian’ documents people involved in local community sports, be it a 12 year old swimmer, 60 year old hockey player or 30 year old amateur boxer. These are the people that make up the underbelly of sports that thrive at grass roots level across the region. They may not have the skill or talent to be an Olympian, however it is through their commitment and participation on a weekly or daily basis that so many sports still function and exist.
“The Kalaboration project is a phenomenal opportunity for me to expand my practice and create a significant body of work around one of the biggest sporting events this country will ever see. I am enormously honoured and privileged to be selected and I hope that this will be the start of something special.” Jaskirt Dhaliwal
