"Youth Voices: Our Vision for the World"
Photography Exhibit

"Pictures bring meaning to my life and the transformation of my community and my country. Though we suffered much by the many years of civil war and the pictures we remember are all negative, but together, we can turn a negative picture into something positive and tell a new and resounding story."
- John, age 17, Liberia.

Peace in Focus would like to thank all who attended and participated in our successful photography exhibit held on October 27, 2011 at the Tantric India Bistro.

The exhibit showcased a selection of photos taken by young photographers from our programs in Boston, Burundi, Liberia, and the Caribbean -- giving us a window into their lives, struggles, and dreams as the present generation of leaders.

A special thank you to our Boston workshop participants, Antonio Stroud and Dolenia Belmir for sharing their inspiring words and experiences. All donations went towards supporting Peace in Focus programs in Boston and abroad.

More exhibits to come soon!
