The PhotoVoice program wrapped up with their reception held at the Frank House in Kearney on Monday, June 18th. Participants’ photographs were displayed for the public to view and over sixty community members attended the opening.
“PhotoVoice is an excellent example of a project supported by Buffalo County Community Partners and how it helps the community,” said Greg Barney, a Kearney businessman. “I encourage everyone to view the…exhibit at the Frank House.”
The participants were also given an opportunity to speak on their personal experience in the program and they all thanked the facilitators for the time and encouragement that they received.
“All of our participants gave 100% during the project and advocated for community change…during the reception,” said Christina Rice, University of Nebraska at Kearney student, and PhotoVoice facilitator. “The potential for the photographs is endless.”
The PhotoVoice program was sponsored by Buffalo County Community Partners, Positive Pressure Coalition, Buffalo County Juvenile Services, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency, the University of Nebraska at Kearney and the Frank House. Special thanks to Chartwells for donating all the food to the event. If you missed the reception, the photographs will be displayed in the Frank House through September 5th and can be viewed during the Frank House’s normal hours.
