You can visit Sant Joan Degollat, of the 8 al 27 June, the exhibition "I grew up ...", a photographic exhibition on street children and young people in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso.

The exhibition is open, of the 8 al 27 June (except days 21, 22 i 23), in Sant Joan Degollat, at the next time: from Monday to Friday, from 18 a 20 h; Saturdays, from 10 a 12 h i de 18 a 20 h; on Sundays, from 10 a 12 hours.

Photographs are from the Bobo-Dioulasso Day and Emergency Center, Burkina Faso, a space where children and young people in a street situation go to eat, rest and take refuge from street life.
This project began four years ago with the help of the Catalan NGO Nou Sol and the local association Tié, with the aim of initiating a process of family return and social inclusion for children and young people in a street situation.
La Paeria de Cervera col·works on this solidarity project through the Catalan Cooperation Fund.

The exhibition “I grew up…”Was presented today by the paer in chief and councilor of Citizenship, Social Action and Health, Joan Santacana; the Councilor for Feminist and LGBTI + Policies, Mireia Brandon; and on behalf of the NGO Nou Sol, the brewer Albert Morales, and Èlia Borràs, curator of the exhibition.

Aquest projecte documental ha estat realitzat pel cooperant expatriat i foto-documentalista, Joel López. S’ha desenvolupat durant més de tres anys i són les fotografies realitzades pels mateixos infants i joves en situació de carrer amb càmeres de carret. Durant aquest temps s’han disparat i revelat més de 1.000 fotografies.
L’exposició vol mostrar el seu dia a dia a través de la seva pròpia mirada i les seves perspectives de futur que responen a l’universal: qui vull ser?
A més també hi ha un apartat de fotografies d’estudi que mostren els objectius professionals d’aquests infants.
