One of our recent RHYTHM graduates, Cole Wood or DJ Combustible, will be doing his first DJ gig at the launch of the Youth Photovoice Community Exhibit this evening, October 23, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Halifax North Memorial Public Library. reachAbility and the RHYTHM program are very excited for Cole, and wish him the best of luck!
“Photovoice is a participatory action project conducted by youth from Needham Community Centre and St. George’s YouthNet. The photovoice project was completed over the summer and facilitated by a group of medical students from Dalhousie University. Youth were asked what makes up a community, what they liked and didn’t like about their community, and how such things affected people living within their community and themselves. The youth took photographs of aspects of their community that were meaningful to them and created narratives explaining the reasons behind capturing certain images.”
The event is open to the public, admission is free, and food and light refreshments will be provided. The official welcome and opening remarks will occur at 7 p.m.
