Photographers Without Borders Launch Party

Promoting Positive Change by Documenting the Work of Charities and NGOs Across the Globe

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 19, 2015) - This February 20-24, Photographers Without Borders (PWB) celebrates its second magazine launch with a gallery exhibition highlighting the stunning work of 10 talented photographers who have traveled around the world to volunteer their time and skills to benefit international charities. Held at the Black Cat Gallery in Roncesvalles, Friday's Opening Night will run from 7pm to midnight. Event programming features speaker and founder Danielle Da Silva, Q&A sessions with the charity's Toronto-based photographers, meet and greet with the PWB team, a photography exhibit, cash bar, cupcakes for sale, free snacks, raffle prizes daily, and some fun magazine giveaways! There will also be a silent auction throughout the week for a framed and signed print from the show, with the winner announced on Tuesday at Closing Night.

"...an image can trigger staggering emotions, memories, and reactions almost instantly… [and] is one of the most powerful means of communication we still use today," explains Danielle Da Silva, PWB Founder.

Photographers Without Borders Magazine and the exhibition are two unique ways PWB helps the public connect with and celebrate the positive work being done around the world by grassroots charities. PWB seeks to not only donate photography and video to organizations that need it, but to raise awareness of their efforts, expand the narratives about people and places, and shed light on some of the good in our world to widen perspectives.

"We launched the organization with the vision to share inspiring stories about people and places everywhere who are doing incredible things." - Danielle Da Silva.

PWB is a volunteer-run non-profit organization, and as such operates on donations. You can help by purchasing our magazine or a photographic print, registering in our photography workshops, or by donating funds or Aeroplan. For more information please visit photographerswithoutborders.org.

Black Cat Gallery is located at 2186 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON.
