Community Composing: What is Hunger?

Community members—via various stimuli—seek to answer the question, "What is hunger?" In this context "hunger” may relate to more than food. In addition to writing, youth addressed this question through a Photo-Voice project. One or more professional composers used the Flint citizens’ responses to the question to compose an original vocal music score for public presentation accompanied by photos taken by the youth participants. Concert performed April- May 2016
