WHAT:         What do playful spaces look like across the City of Rochester? How have residents created interactive spaces for kids? Twelve residents across the city are sharing how they have worked to reclaim and repurpose their neighborhoods in a new exhibit at Central Library.

The Photovoz exhibit uses participatory photography to chronicle the residents’ experiences in their neighborhood. The exhibit helps us to better understand why play is important to residents across the City of Rochester and shares the impact that new play spaces can have on the fabric of a neighborhood and the residents who live there.

More information about the project can be found at https://www.healthikids.org/events/photovoz-picturing-play.
