From the folks at ArtiCulture:

Community Members,

Over the past year ArtiCulture has been working with a group of Minneapolis teens on a public art photo-project. A community event is being hosted at ArtiCulture and we wanted to send an open invitation to those interested in the topic of hunger in our affluent society and and access. Please post the attached flyer on if you have a bulletin board for community happenings and pass it around your online social networks.

Thanks,

Liz Greenbaum, Executive Director

Inside Out details:

On Sunday, March 1st from 5 – 8 pm, ArtiCulture is hosting a FriendRaiser (an open community event) as part of a teen-driven photo project that intends to spark dialogue and inspiration in our Twin Cities community.

Our dream is to inspire our Minneapolis community with up close and personal photos of people dealing with scarcity of food and/or shelter.

By asking questions related to this subject, we want to discover what people want to share in their community. What do they really care about? Is it access to healthy food, affordable housing, and /or quality education? What do YOU want to picture happening in the community? The beauty of this art is that it lives in interactions. The purpose of this project is to capture what matters to you, to our community in Minneapolis.

 

Here in Minneapolis, we want to inspire that fact—a picture can change a perspective: 

“The beauty of an art project is that you cannot always measure the impact, but one day it can be clear.”

–JR (French Photographer, Founder of Inside Out Project)

 

We want to encourage a broad spectrum of people to participate in the discussion and photo project.

Please post the attached Flyer and feel free to invite others — especially if you have an artistic teen in your life!
