Kids capture their point of view via the Youth Lens on Poverty project
Teenagers living in some of Winnipeg’s lowest income neighbourhoods have captured their view of the world through the Youth Lens on Poverty project.
“There’s some beautiful pictures of nature, of recreation and sport,” said Molly McCracken of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. “Also some challenging pictures about housing issues.”
The exhibit is coordinated by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives as a visual part of the organization’s annual inner city report.
Sixteen youth are involved, all of who are Indigenous or newcomers.
Joselyn Moise was a project participant, she said the skills she learned could be used throughout Manitoba and not just in Winnipeg.
The photos are on display at the Graffiti Gallery.
