Kids With Cameras Project Concludes This Wednesday With Exhibition Of Photos:

The fourth annual Kids with Cameras summer project will come to an end this Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 6 p.m. with an exhibition that’s open to the public.

It will be held at Bergamot Station at 2525 Michigan Avenue in Santa Monica inside the G Building corridor.

The project is sponsored by the Human Relations Council Santa Monica Bay.

The evening program will feature a reception and a photo exhibit with Santa Monica Fire Chief Scott Ferguson as emcee.

Based on the theme People and Places of Santa Monica, the six week workshop in photojournalism took the 20 middle school youth recruited from Police Activities League, Boys and Girls Club and Santa Monica Family YMCA.

The Youth snapped photos at the Santa Monica Fire Department’s training facility, Palisades Park with Police K 9 Unit, Annenberg Beach Club, Third Street Promenade with a focus on street performers and public art, the Museum of Flying, and Santa Monica Pier/Palisades Park.

The summer workshop was led by photo mentors Fabian Lewkowicz, Nick Steers, and Charles Haskell. The Committee is co-chaired by Santa Monica Fire Department Chief Scott Ferguson and Donna Gentry, Gentry Group.

The fundamental objective of the summer workshops was to provide local kids with an opportunity to explore and appreciate the beauty and diversity of Santa Monica, says Human

Relations Board Chair professor Jody Priselac, Executive Director of UCLA’s Center X.

“The photographs they took demonstrate the students’ amazing creativity and talent,” Priselac said. “We are so proud of what they have accomplished.”

The Human Relations Council is a partnership of local community organizations, individuals, institutions, and business endeavors to promote and support a respectful and socially just community through education, advocacy and resolution of local conflicts and issues.
