Exhibit scheduled for photovoice project

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces, “Through the Eyes of our Youth,” an exhibition in conjunction with Michigan State University Extension office in Marquette County.

This fall, teens from Marquette and Alger Counties picked up cameras to show us what their community looks like through the eyes of a teenager. During the reception, five youth participants in The Art of Teen Leadership – Marquette Photovoice Project will share their perspective on the assets that make our community great, and how it could be even better. Community leaders and members of the public are invited to attend the opening reception to speak with the artists.

Photovoice is a participatory action research method that uses photography as a medium to explore community assets, issues and opportunities for change. Youth participants learn leadership and photography skills and express their point of view to community leaders as a way of influencing positive social and community change through their participation. The Marquette Photovoice Project was facilitated by staff from the Michigan State University Extension office in Marquette County and photographer Lali Khalid, with support from the City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center.

The exhibit will run from Nov. 27 to Dec. 5, with an opening reception on Nov. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be provided. The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is located in the lower level of the Peter White Public Library. For more information or questions, please call 228-0472 or email arts-culture@marquettemi.gov.
