In March the United Way asked Winnipeggers to donate used digital cameras so hundreds of young people across the city could learn about art and photography. Dozens of cameras were collected and several successful workshops were held throughout April and May.
To wrap things up, the Coalition of Community Based Youth Serving Agencies will be opening its third annual group art show, My Life: My Lens, at the Graffiti Art Programming Gallery, 109 Higgins Avenue, on June 4 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Participants from the nineteen community-based youth serving agencies operating across Winnipeg took over nine thousand photos. Two hundred of those images will be on display Thursday.
The exhibition will remain open to the public until June 12.
