One hundred and twenty students, alumni, faculty and staff of the Monterey Institute have already contributed their stories to the MIIS Around the World Campaign -- but the goal is to reach 500.
Two MIIS Students Open Photo Exhibit at Monterey Art Museum
March 14, 2013
Karla Micheli (MPA/MAIEM ‘14) and Natalie Alfaro (MPA ‘14) spent last summer in Granada, Nicaragua interning with the organization Viva Nicaragua. The two students secured immersive learning funding from the Monterey Institute to support their internships, and partnered with the Monterey Museum of Art to produce a museum exhibit as their final project.
In Nicaragua, part of their internship involved helping to establish a holistic educational scholarship program for a former squatter community. They also interviewed politicians, economists, teachers and an abundance of community members about revolutions of the past, present conditions and future hopes. The exhibit, “De Nicaragua,” is their way to tell the stories of the people that they met, and to shed light on daily life in Nicaragua.
The exhibit formally opened on March 5 and will run until April 14.
