Picture Us  |  Tyngsborough  |  2006 

Through Picture Us!, Tyngsborough-area children exchanged photographic journals, artwork, and poetry with children in Iraq, Morocco, Ireland, Mexico, Zambia and Nepal. The program promoted self-expression, understanding, and friendship between children and adults of different cultures. Photographer and Picture Us! founder Kathleen Geraghty created the program for her son's school as a way of bringing together her artistic skills with her desire to be involved in her children's lives. The program received overwhelming support and Geraghty has established a non-profit, Everyday Joy, to carry on the work.

Funded by the Tyngsborough Cultural Council in 2006
Grant Recipient: Everyday Joy, Inc., $200
