A Crowd-Funding Campaign for Stories of El Salvador

35mmThe exhibition Stories of El Salvador: The Civil War and Its Aftermath will open April 8, 2014 at the Stovall Gallery, at New York University’s Kimmel Center.

In order to cover the exhibition costs, we have launched a crowd-funding campaign through Indiegogo and so far have raised 90% of the goal with 5 more days to go.
We have also started a great collaboration with Dr. Pamela Calla and her Spring 2014 undergraduate seminar, Women in Social Movements in Latin America. Students are helping us in the many preparatory phases of the exhibition, from scanning 35mm slides to framing photos, from detailed research of historical facts to marketing and outreach activities. They will also collaborate to the Film Series and Symposium that will accompany the exhibition.

April 16, 2014 – 6.30pm

April 23, 2014 – 6.30pm
