“Hammered: A Sober Look at Youth and Alcohol” Youth Photovoice Exhibit
This youth-created exhibit is currently on tour in schools and communities throughout Saskatchewan. Eleven full-colour banners bring to life this powerful youth photovoice project. “Hammered” explores the impact of alcohol on Saskatchewan youth as viewed and experienced by the young people themselves. Photovoice is a technique that gives a “voice” to people whose voices are often unheard or ignored. Through powerful photographs and youth’s own words, Hammered: A Sober Look at Youth and Alcohol is relevant to all generations as it looks at alcohol use in youth culture. The contents of the exhibit can also be found in the accompanying booklet which details how young people can take the lead on their own photovoice project.
The easily assembled display consists of eleven 6’x3’ panels that work well in a large open room. Viewers should be allowed to move freely throughout the panels, much like an art gallery exhibit. If Youth Action for Prevention (YAP) staff attend the event, they will set-up and take-down the display.
Support Staff Requirements:
As the topic of alcohol use among youth can bring up many feelings and challenges, it is advised that the school counselor be on site during the exhibit to assist viewers if needed.
