Photovoice Project

The Alliance for Community Transformations (ACT) at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center was awarded a grant through the Vermont Department of Health to help explore what elements of our communities positively or negatively affect our ability to live healthy, vibrant lives.
To achieve this, ACT set out to learn more about our food systems, how we access opportunities to be physically active, the bike-ability or walk-ability of our neighborhoods and much more.
GraphicPhotovoice Bennington County gives us an opportunity to hear from youth, in their own words what they see, feel and believe about our communities and how elements of their daily lives impact their health. More than 50 youth  from throughout the county created 60+ original pieces which are on display in this exhibit.
The Photovoice method is a style of research that gives the participants a creative means of expressing their opinions that is used around the globe to enact social change.

This exhibit is free and open to the public.
