See Me Thrive - CP Photography Exhibit at Pleasant Hill City Hall Opens April 20th

AJA Project Flyer 2015-Side 1_Page_1.jpgOpening: April 20th, 6.00 - 8.00 p.m. Meet students, teachers and supporters.
 

Exhibit: April 21st - May 5th, during business hours. (M, T, W from 8:30-5pm, TH from 8:30-6pm, and F from 8:30-1pm)


Pleasant Hill City Hall, 100 Gregory Lane, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523


Students at College Park High School are excited to announce their upcoming photographic exhibit: See Me Thrive. Through their photographs, students examine what it means to thrive versus merely survive by uncovering strengths in themselves and others on their school campus.


See Me Thrive was made possible by the California Safe and Supportive Schools (S3) grant-a statewide initiative to improve academic achievement by understanding and improving school climate. The AjA Project, based in San Diego, specializes in youth-based participatory photography programs. Under the S3 program, AjA has been working in College Park classrooms, coaching students and teachers on techniques for “going deep” and using photography as a tool not only to identify issues but to also envision solutions.

We hope you will come share students’ discoveries about what’s working at College Park and what we can improve.
