In PhotoVoice, participants use photography to tell the story behind a community issue that is important to them. Then, they plan and host a gallery opening event to teach the community about the issue. In a recent program, participants who lived in North Minneapolis took photos to demonstrate the lingering damage from the tornado that devastated the area in May of 2011. Their gallery displayed the sadness and destruction in the community, as well as the hope and resilience that came from the rebuilding process, and was aptly titled, “Of Sadness & Hope.”
