Upcoming Events

Mark your calendar for the April Monthly Meeting scheduled for Thursday, April 19th at Paoletti -School of Photography inside Galleria Cavour.  Social greetings will begin at 7:15pm followed by a presentation at 8pm by Bologna-based and internationally published photographer, Federico Borella who will present his project 'Sheroes - After the Acid Attacks'. This series documents women who are victims of acid attacks and have found a sense of belonging and work at The Sheroes Hangout Cafe in India. Founded in December 2014 by the Stop Acid Attacks campaign and the Chaanv Foundation, the cafe was created to help these women rebuild their lives and find community and support. Following the presentation, consider joining us for a no-host aperitivo, location to be confirmed shortly.
