Upcoming exhibit in Ottawa!



Things have been a little quiet over here but believe us...they have not been inactive!

We're just days away from launching a major exhibition called Pieces of Innocence in the lobby of the Pearson Building (Foreign Affairs headquarters at 125 Sussex Drive in Ottawa). The exhibit will be open to the public from Monday, October 6 to Friday, October 31, 2008.

For more info on the exhibit, you can check out the event page on Facebook.

It would also be super cool if you joined the Tumaini Children's Project Facebook Group!

I also want to say thank you, asante sana (Kiswahili) and ero komano (Luo) to some of our major supporters including MoreTimeMoms, GPC Labworks and Michelle's Frame Maker and Gallery in North Bay. Michelle was completely stupendous and provided an overwhelming contribution in framing supplies for this exhibit. A lot of other businesses in North Bay supported the project too. Thanks to everyone for their generosity.

If you've been following this blog, you know what's up but if not, this summer, a few of us went to Kenya to teach a photography workshop at an HIV orphanage. We've been back since early August and have since made presentations at the World Youth Congress in Qu├ębec City, Zoom in on the World in Pembroke and at World Global Health Day at the University of Ottawa Medical School.

That's it for now, I think. More to come later. Leave a comment if you have any questions!

Awesome project. The work you are doing, and the children are doing, is really inspiring.
