Hello TB Photovoice fans,
We are part of a Stop TB video contest! Please view our video and help us gain votes by either Liking us on Facebook, tweeting about us on Twitter, or sharing us on LinkedIn.
You can help us make it to the second round of this contest, where the top vote-getters will be reviewed by an expert panel of representatives from the Stop TB Partnership. The winner will be featured heavily in Stop TB Partnership publications, including web and social media. Our video was directed and produced by 14-year old Jamison Baken, of Billings, Montana, and it features many of the works of TB Photovoice groups around the world.
Please help our TB Photovoice video reach your circle of friends!
Next month, we will be sharing our TB Photovoice at the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012)in Washington D.C., July 22-27. Our TB Photovoice information booth, in the vibrant Global Village area of the conference, will feature an interactive experience for participants in which they will explore the power of a picture and reflect on their personal feelings on TB and HIV issues.
We will also display the TB Photovoice-Nuestra Casa Exhibit with major assistance from SOLUCION TB PCI and the University of Texas at El Paso. This will feature photos associated with the Nuestra Casa Initiative, an extension project of TB Photovoice groups along the U.S.-Mexico border. Photographer Damien Schumann assisted with the project and his photos provide a glimpse into the lives and struggles of ten people who have been touched by tuberculosis or who know someone or have a loved one with the disease.
The Global Village is open to the general public and conference delegates and admission is free. If you happen to be in DC during this time or know of friends in the DC area, please come and join us!
