Peru Through the Lens Art Show & Fundraiser
Saturday, May 25, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (ADT)
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Join us for a Saturday afternoon Art Show opening in celebration of travel, photography & giving back!
Halifax photographer & Adventure Travel Specialist, Shari Tucker, just returned from leading a group of 12 hobby photographers on a life changing & eye opening tour around Peru from April 6 - 20th and wants to share their vision, creativity and passion with you at this special Art Show & Fundraiser.
While in Peru the group spent a day photographing street children at The House of the People of the Sun in Cuzco, a project supported by The Planeterra Foundation.
“House of the People of the Sun” acts as a haven for 80 children and adolescents who live in extreme poverty. The home is open during the day, and is run by a staff of teachers and social workers. Children are given the opportunity to drop-in to receive help with homework, a warm meal, and participate in classes and workshops that teach them valuable skills, including jewelry making, leather working, sewing, cooking, music and English."
Last year we raised over $900 for the Planeterra Foundation and we look forward to giving back again this year, with money earmarked directly for the House of the People of the Sun project.
Join us Saturday, May 25th to view & buy photos from Peru Through the Lens participants and help support street kids in Cuzco, Peru and maybe win yourself a little something from Peru or a voucher for your next trip with G Adventures!
There is no fee to attend the opening, but donations for Planeterra Foundation are appreciated and will be accepted at the door.
Opening Remarks will be from approximately 1:30 - 2:00pm.
Drop in anytime between 1pm and 4pm.
Show will continue to be displayed until June 25th, 2013.
