The Plaza Photovoice Project,” a free photo exhibit showcasing the creativity of more than 50 of Hawaii’s seniors, will be on display at the Hawaii State Library from November 3 to 29 in the Lobby.  

The Plaza Photovoice Project, created to help Hawaii’s seniors learn how to operate digital cameras and express themselves through photography, was coordinated by Colby Takeda, Administrator-in-Training of The Plaza at Mililani.  The senior photographers include some with little or no prior photography experience, and some living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

This exploratory exhibition is suitable for all ages, and may be viewed during normal library hours.

The Hawaii State Library is located at 478 South King Street.  For more information, please call the Library’s Social Science & Philosophy Section at 586-3529.
