The group Focus International was a group of students at the University of British Columbia organized to critique the strictures imposed by the business community. They stated that: "....the business world has organized and perfected life into a neat, clean and efficient style." Therefore as part of the project they divided into four departments in order to better resemble the subjects they were criticizing. They established hours of operation during which time they accepted works from the student body to incorporate into their corporation. The report contains proposals, memos, student art, and photographs. The concept was devised by Catherine Broome, but students contributed to the formation of the company.
