COLIN EASTON: Dreamer, Storyteller, Humanitarian.
What started as a personal social experiment has led Colin Easton on a life-changing and very public journey. Writer, hobby photographer and avid people watcher, Colin Easton is the creator of The Stranger Project 2014. Based in Vancouver BC, Colin goes out into the city streets and meets one stranger each day, taking the time to find out each stranger’s story. Colin then writes about the encounter and shares it via his website and social media. “It’s about connection,” says Colin. “I wanted to see what would happen if I stopped walking past people and actually started to reach out and try to connect with strangers. To open my mind, my heart, and just listen – free from the judgement we so often carry around.”
