Event description

Description

On Feb 22 from 6:30-8:30PM, Fostering Media Connections, The Foster Youth Museum and the California Youth Connection will host a reception to celebrate the exhibit at St. John’s Cathedral where you will hear from a lineup of inspirational guest speakers and get a chance to spend time with L.A.'s foster care community.


Foster Youth Museum (FYM), a project conceived by current and former foster youth, is the largest collection of art, artifacts and video portraits about youth experiences in foster care.

In large scale archival quality black and white portraits, accompanied by stories of significance about those youth, See Me powerfully documents and tells the stories of the resilience and undeniable beauty of foster youth.

Featuring college students and graduates, mothers, social workers, lawyers, public servants, community leaders and artists, See Me provides a hopeful narrative for youth emerging from Foster Care.

The exhibit also includes, for the first time ever, original photographs from foster youth photographers portraying something that holds deep meaning to themselves – other current or former foster youth engaged on their journey through community college, trade school or university.

February 22nd will be a night of celebration of the resilience of current and former foster youth in Los Angeles, and we hope you will join us.
