Earlier this summer we announced a new media project that has the potential to introduce thousands of people to the crisis in Sudan and get them directly involved with our programs on the ground. You can watch the above video for an overview of the Yida Photography Exhibit.
Today we are bringing you a few exciting updates about the exhibit! Here they are:
Most sections of the exhibit include educational posters that explain aspects of life in Yida and the background of the crisis in Sudan. There is also a singular flow of direction as this is a story-driven art project that leads people into joining our movement.
Visitors will be encouraged to snap photos on their smart-phones to share online so that more people can visit the exhibit when it travels to their area. There will be no fee for entry as the focus of the exhibit is getting new people involved for the long-term.
Current Funding Status
Earlier this summer we launched the crowdfunding campaign for this exhibit and you have made considerable progress towards our $8,000 goal. Our hope is that we can wrap up fundraising in the next few weeks so that the exhibit will be ready for the public in January 2017.
If you haven't given yet, a generous donor is currently matching all donations to the creation of this exhibit. That means that if you give $25 right now, they will give $25 as well to double your impact! It also means that we only need to raise $1,627 more and our generous matching donor will cover the rest!
The more people that give, the sooner we can start building the exhibit. GIVE HERE »
