Richland County Public Library in Columbia, SC, Features Photography Exhibition
The Photovoice: Empowering Today's Youth for Tomorrow exhibit will be on display in the Wachovia Gallery of the Richland County Public Library in Columbia, SC, through Oct. 26, 2003.
This exhibit features photography by youth ages 9-21 as a part of the Vision Leadership Institute and USC's School of Public Health and the School of Medicine's Photovoice project. This youth empowerment project illustrates the photographic techniques used to identify and represent local communities. Participants identified local concerns and interests and used photo documentation to present findings and recommendations to decision-making bodies of their choice.
Photovoice originated in China and was developed by Caroline Wang, PhD and Mary Ann Burris, PhD. The project aims to provide a voice for youth in their communities or schools. This project empowers youth to make decisions and create catalysts to initiate change in their lives, schools and communities.
The mission of the Richland County Public Library is meeting our citizens'needs for reading, learning and information.
