MARCH 16, 2019 - MAY 25, 2019
Reception: MARCH 23, 2019 at 1:00 PM
Photographs by: The English Language Learners at SER-JOBS For Progress, Inc.
The over thirty photographers whose work is displayed in this exhibit are all adult English-language learners at SER-Jobs for Progress, Inc. Over the past year, they have been exploring the world around them through the lens of a camera and taking photographs of whatever struck them as important, interesting, or beautiful. They hail from countries around the globe and have now made their home in Fall River. Their photographs and accompanying captions depict family and friends, cultural traditions, their neighborhoods, and new ways to see commonplace details of daily life. They also reveal hopes and dreams and what it has been like to leave a homeland in order to make a new life for themselves and their children in the U.S.
This project was made possible by a grant from MassHumanities and contributions from SER-Jobs for Progress, Inc. and the Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture and Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.
Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, March 23rd from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. The public is cordially invited. Admission is free.
