WAYout Arts

Couldn’t make it for last month’s gallery show? We’ve decided to extend the partnership for another month to let more people see this incredible work. Join us this Thursday 3/6 for an exclusive glimpse into the life in Sierra Leone through the eyes of their young folk. This is a photographic partnership with “WAYout,” a Sierra Leonese group working with street youth, and p:ear. This show will also feature skateboards designed by our youth.

WAYout “Worldwide Arts for Youth” works in Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries in the world, to changes the lives of the vulnerable young people through arts training and shelter. They engage and include youth by promoting artistic freedom, education and empowerment through photography, film and recording music.

Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world. Over a decade of conflict left 20% of children without a primary care giver. Over half the population is under 18 and 60% are unemployed. Poverty is widespread and inequalities pervasive, especially gender. WAYout works with young people suffering the effects of poverty and conflict in some of the most deprived areas.

Open for First Thursday, March 7th!
