Event Details

Over the course of 2017 and early 2018, the Tampa Bay Chapter of the United Nations Association of The United States of America, the Refugee & Migrant Women’s Initiative (RAMWI), and Photography by Avery will stage the “Picture My Life: A Refugee Story” project. The project will offer insight into the lives and experiences of ten to fifteen refugee youth living in Tampa Bay while enriching their lives through a photographic mentoring program.
These children have already received high-quality cameras to keep as their own and have been using them to learn the basics of photographic arts. In addition to learning a new skill, the youth use the medium of photography as a tool to share their experiences. These photos will be displayed in an exhibition on February 22, 2018.
