p>lee and francessWe are delighted to welcome back British photojournalist Lee Karen Stow. Lee visited us last year to tell us about the Women with Cameras project in Sierra Leone. She has more stories to share, about the brave and determined women who through photography are improving their lives in that desperately poor country. Francess Ngaboh-Smart, one of the Women with Cameras members, has overcome obstacles and barriers to become a sought-after professional who uses her photographic talent to document the changes in her country. We had hoped to host Francess this summer, but she was denied a visa to visit Canada. We will have some of her work for sale.

Lee will also tell us about the amazing members of the Sierra Leone Women’s Boxing team, who are, quite literally, fighting to improve their lives and bring home the first Olympic gold medal in women’s boxing.

Tickets are $20 at the door. Join us for tea/coffee and dessert. Proceeds will go to the Women with Cameras project.
