"Doing T.I.M.E. in Athens: A Photovoice Experience" at Lyndon House Arts Center
Saturday, January 11, 2020
The Lyndon House Arts Center is collaborating with Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement and the University of Georgia’s School of Social Work, to host Doing T.I.M.E. (This is My Environment) in Athens: a Photovoice Experience. This youth photography project is organized by Professor Michael Robinson and is funded by the Fahs-Beck Fund for Research & Experimentation.
Photovoice projects are a form of social activism that combine photography, discussion, descriptive text and public exhibits to address community issues.
“The adolescents will be given cameras to take pictures of what they like about their community, what they don’t like, and what would they change,” said Robinson
The exhibition will be on display through February 8. All exhibitions are free and open to the public during regular gallery hours - Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 9:00 p.m., and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
This photography exhibition is accompanied by a free Family Day public event on Saturday February 8 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. The youth artists will be speaking about their photographs on view, their community neighborhood and ideas. A reception will follow.
