Send Hope to the UN Women Exhibit!

$2,325 of $2,400 goal

Raised by 53 people in 5 months
As part of the global network of MyCity Photo Projects, which provide photovoice opportunities to people experiencing homelessness, we received amazing new at the MyNew Orleans Photo Project!  Four photos from our 2017 and 2018 calendars that were taken by women have been accepted to be part of the upcoming "Women Without Walls" photography exhibit in Geneva - and 2018 Cover photographer Hope Magraff's photo has been chosen for the exhibit poster and program!  

See Facebook event here:  https://www.facebook.com/events/1036744303158281/
"This exhibition showcases photographs taken by women affected by homelessness from all over the world. The powerful images show what these women love about their cities, their friends and their families, whilst also highlighting their plight when they are homeless.

"This exhibition also illustrates the specific needs of women experiencing homelessness. Hence, the exhibition clearly links Sustainable Development Goal 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable and Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.


"This exhibition is also the opening event of UNECE’s #UrbanWeek from 1-5 October 2018. Please see more information on Urban Week here:  https://bit.ly/2PcEYgA

"The opening reception will take place at 12:30 PM at the Passerelle, Building E, Palais des Nations on 1 October 2018 to celebrate World Habitat Day. "

We are raising funds to get Hope to Geneva, accompanied by Heather Milton, coordinator of the MyNew Orleans Photo Project.   The funds raised will go to Hope's airfare, accomodations, and travel expenses, while Heather will cover half of her own expenses

We feel this opportunity is so important for Hope, but also for the MyNew Orleans Photo Project to be part of an important event that will help educate people and lawmakers from all over the globe about the issues associated with homelessness, and their impact on people all over the world.  By representing New Orleans, which is implementing some great programs for addressing homelessness, Hope will help bring much needed attention to this issue.

Thank you again for sending this lil slice of New Orleans to see her photo hung at the UN and share the warmth of the Big Easy with people from around the world!

All the best,

This photo is another one from Hope's roll last year - the woman in the lower right corner of this mural by Henry Lipkis is Hope herself! You can find this mural on St Claude Avenue, showing many sides of New Orleans culture and character!
