A Way Home Peterborough is a community collaboration strategizing to end youth homelessness. The experts in this work are youth experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity. This “Photo Voice” project aimed to create a meeting place for youth to use the common language of photography to express their different experiences of homelessness. Youth were given cameras and a mission to show Peterborough what homelessness means to them. The photos they shot were then reviewed and selected by their peers for inclusion in this exhibit.This exhibit honours the resiliency of youth who are homeless or precariously housed and explores their diversity of experience. The broader aim is to start a community conversation and inspire action to end youth homelessness in Peterborough. Check SPARK website for exhibition hours of operation. Exhibition continues until April 30th.
