My Peace River is a multimedia project showcasing the Peace Region by photographer Jodie Ponto and musician Jody Peck. The project was created in response to the threat of the Site C Dam on the Peace River. The two artist came together to raise awareness of the project around the province, and to celebrate the beauty of the Peace River. Jody Peck, also known as Miss Quincy, along with Twin Peaks, also from the Peace Region, will be releasing an EP with songs recorded live at the August 29th event Party For The Peace. All proceeds raised from the event and the sale of the EP will go directly to the Treaty 8 First Nations court battle against the Site C Dam.
Jodie Ponto has released postcards and will be selling prints of her photography to raise money and awareness for the court battle as well.
