The lives of refugee and immigrant teens new to Tucson are on display in Midtown. The photography exhibit "Home? Teen Refugees and Immigrants Explore Their Tucson," is open at the Ward 6 office, 3202 E. First St., and is part of a neighborhood storytelling project by students at Catalina Magnet High School. The 62 photos, including the one seen here by Sadaf Hakeem, come from 45 English as a Second Language Students who have moved to Tucson from several countries including Afghanistan, Ghana, Honduras, the Ivory Coast, Mexico, Sudan, Liberia and Sierra Leone. "Many of their images and words powerfully portray a Tucson we often don't see and can learn a great deal from," said photography instructor Josh Schachter, who worked with CMHS teacher Julie Kasper on the project. The free exhibit runs now through July 31. The show is open at the Ward 6 office from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. For information call 791-4601. To learn more about the show, join Schachter for an audio tour at www.azstarnet.com/accent.
