Friendship Centre to host Youth Photo Voice Exhibition

The Eckville Friendship Centre will be hosting the Photo Voice Exhibition on April 5th.

The Eckville Friendship Centre will be hosting the Photo Voice Exhibition on April 5th.

The Exhibition is put on by the Eckville Recreation Board Youth Program and intends to provide a voice for and input from the young people of Eckville. The project puts a camera into the hands of young people and asks them to take photos throughout the Town with the intention of answering what they are most proud of in the community and what they would like to see changed. The project then asks them to provide written feedback on why they chose their particular photos.

The photos are then presented at the Friendship Centre, who have kindly donated their space, where residents of Eckville are invited to come view the photos and discuss the important issues facing the Town presented by these photos. The Eckville Recreation Board Youth Program is the result of an amalgamation between the Eckville Recreation Board and the Eckville and Community Youth Society, which started in 2006.

“The Eckville and Community Youth Society started the youth program in January 2006 in Eckville specifically for youth in Grades 7 12,” Rec Board Member Karen Engen said. “The majority of our participants are in Grades 7 -10 but we do get some older students. This program is open to kids from Eckville, David Thompson and we even have one from Rimbey.”

The event will start at 7 p.m. on Wednesday April 5th and go to 8 p.m. at the Eckville Friendship Centre.
