Peace in Focus Boston Photography Exhibit, February 11, 2010

Thaddeus Miles and Peace in Focus present a "Celebration of Peace through Arts."

Despite being on the front lines of disaster, civil war, and urban and gang violence, youth voices and perspectives are rarely found in mainstream media. Peace in Focus works to train young people in photography, media, community leadership, and innovative peacebuilding practices with the aim of elevating youth voice and emphasizing the role of creativity in building community. Our exhibit and celebration on February 11 6-9PM at the Harriet Tubman House will showcase a selection of photos taken by Thaddeus Miles (Board President of PIF) and our young photographers in Boston, Burundi, and Liberia -- giving us a window into their lives, struggles, and undeniable talent as visual storytellers.

This event invites community members interested in photography, youth and community work, and global peace to celebrate youth efforts at creating visible social change. There will be interactive youth photography stations, spoken word, live music, light refreshments, special guests, and gifts for sale.

Photos will be on display through April.
