Global Neighborhood Photo Reception

  • Terrain Gallery 304 W. Pacific Avenue Spokane, WA (map)

This summer Terrain opened a new gallery show entitled Snapshot: A Look at Spokane Now. Our hope with Snapshot is to capture this moment in the life of our city from as many perspectives as possible. 

This particular event is in celebration of the photographic contributions of local former refugees supported by Global Neighborhood. The contributors are Mohammed and Athraa; a married couple recently arrived from Iraq, Mahsumeh is a mother from Afghanistan who is now Global Neighborhood's assistant manager at the thrift store, Farah is from Sudan and is now lead driver for Global Neighborhood and Mohammed who is previously an electrician and from Syria. 

We want to celebrate the Spokane we see emerging — the tremendous growth, the pride, the enthusiasm — but we also want to challenge ourselves as a community to ensure this change makes Spokane a more hopeful place for everyone.

To that end, we've asked various groups to capture Spokane through their eyes. We've given out cameras, collected images through a hashtag - #snapshotspokane - held writing workshops and asked professional photographers to contribute to this ever-growing, increasingly layered show. 

A special thank you to the Smith-Barbieri Progressive Fund, A Charitable Foundation who contributed the cameras for this project.
