Communities in Focus: A (Sneak) Peek Through SMART Lens
Thursday, November 29, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM (EST)
A picture speaks a thousand words—especially when it is the only mode of communication you share with another person. Please join Many Languages, One Voice (MLOV) for a private viewing the evening of Thursday, November 29th featuring powerful photographs taken by DC’s English Language Learner (ELL) high school students. This event will showcase work that captures local students' experiences as immigrants, ELLs, and young urban organizers. You'll not only get a chance to view the stills before they debut to the general public, but also meet the young artists who participate in MLOV's youth education organizing body, the Student Multiethnic Action Research Team (SMART). Come early and join us for an exclusive happy hour at RedRocks Pizzeria.
