My friendly server at Casa Mia Café this afternoon asked me to spread the word about a photography exhibit happening next week at Ampersand. The exhibit is called Qoriwaynacunas (Quechua for “Youth of Gold”) and the photographs were taken by 9 youth in Peru with disposable cameras taking pictures of their everyday life.

The show opens Saturday, September 5, 2009 from Noon to 8:00 p.m. at Ampersand (98 Water Street, Charlottetown) with live acoustic music, and continues daily until September 11.  Admission is by donation and the photos are for sale; 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the photos go back to the community of Chocco, Peru.  For more information, phone 629-5834.

Let’s figure out a way of “being there remotely”, Peter.
