This exhibition is a culmination of a year-long collaborative project between Century College, Heritage Academy of Science and Technology, Ubah Medical Academy, and the Skyline Tower/CommonBond Community. The project provided enriching and inspiring arts learning experiences for East African youth in grades nine through twelve.
Professor of Art at Century College, Melissa Borman, along with Century College Artist-in-Residence, Mohamud Mumin, guided students in projects exploring photography as a means of visual communication and creative expression in a culturally relevant context, while providing exposure to college arts learning environments.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
