Cambridge Police Invite Community to Attend Youth Photovoice Exhibit Sept. 10
On Monday, Sept. 10, youth action researchers from Cambridge will present their Community Safety Audit and Photovoice Exhibit to the Cambridge City Council, at 5 p.m., in the Sullivan Chamber of Cambridge City Hall.
This summer, 11 Cambridge residents, ages 15 to 23, assisted in a community safety audit as part of a federal Community Transformation Grant awarded to a coalition of Middlesex County communities and facilitated by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH). The youth documented the causes and effects of unsafe environments in the city through a method called Photovoice.
These researchers will be sharing their photographs and presenting their findings and recommendations with the community in six areas: City Maintenance, Residential Maintenance, Health, Crime, Homelessness and Positive Prevention.
Visit www.facebook.com/CambridgePolice for a sample of photos from the exhibit and to see comments and feedback from members of the community.
