Community photographers from the New Town Success Zone are making their debut at the April Jacksonville Art Walk.
Approximately 10 women participated in a PhotoVoice Project, entitled “Strengthening the Voices of Women in New Town: Making our Neighborhood Better for Children.” The NTSZ Early Childhood Committee and Mayor’s Commission on the Status of Women organized the project, which is funded by the Women’s Giving Alliance, the Chartrand Foundation and individual donors.
The PhotoVoice concept is a means to build communities and inspire grassroots community action through participatory storytelling. The New Town project allows women from the North Jacksonville community to depict the concerns and strengths of the area and their hopes for a safe and appealing place to live and raise their young children through pictures.
ArtWalk is April 6, 2011 from 5 to 8 pm. The exhibit will be located on the 3rd floor of the main library, at 303 N. Laura St., Jacksonville, FL 32202.
