A Walk Through Poverty Exhibit

Friday, March 22, 2019
Spokane Valley

A Walk Through Poverty, a 30-minute documentary, and the accompanying art exhibit, by artist Cameron Day, explores the plight and complexity of poverty in the Inland Northwest. This documentary and exhibit show that poverty is a topic of critical importance and touches all of us in one form or another, even when it seems we are invincible. You are encouraged to bring your school, nonprofit, business, or church groups for a unique look at local income inequality. If you have a large group, please call the library ahead of time so that we can accommodate you.

Brought to you in partnership with Rogue Heart Media and Hemmingson Philanthropy.
