Photo Show to Benefit the 160 Girls Project: February and March at Java Jive, Church/Isabella

Posted by admin on 26 Jan 2011 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

UPDATE: We’ve been asked to leave the show up till the end of March. We’re so pleased – people have said they like the quality and variety of the photos, and the reasonable prices. We’ve sold 9 photos so far. There are still about two dozen on display. Please stop by to see which might enhance your walls.

Opening: Tuesday, February 1, 6 p.m. Click to hear and see Flora Terah share truths about Kenya, and Glenys Babcock explain the priorities of her organization, Pragmora; as well, I tell something about the valuable work of the 160 Girls project, and talk a bit about the photos for sale in the show.

Here’s a very short, very beautiful, very moving video about
The Equality Effect.

At the opening, we learned a little about The Equality Effect from Flora Terah, here from Kenya.

And we heard from our special guest, Glenys Babcock, founder of Pragmora, working to build peace around the world.

We had some free and delicious nibbles; as well, Eugene Johnson of Java Jive generously offered his coffees, teas, and juices for only $1 each.

Eugene supports Adopt A Village in Laos. There’s a donation box on his counter.

Our photographers:
Mark Daye is an executive member of both the Green Party of Canada and the Green Party of Ontario for Toronto Centre. He specializes in photos of Paris … and a lot more.

Bill Michelson is our Toronto Centre EDA’s financial agent. An urban sociologist, he has had many of his photos published. This show will feature his photos of Africa and India.

Ellen Michelson is proud to be included, pleased and emboldened by the sale of her work to benefit Elizabeth May’s campaign in B.C. Some of her photos are of places she’s worked abroad.

The full price of all photos will be donated to The Equality Effect.

Posted by admin on 31 Oct 2010 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

Ellen will be one of the ‘human books’ available at five Toronto Public Library branches on Saturday, November 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. More than 50 ‘human books’ will be available. You can reserve a half-hour, on-the-spot chat with one in advance, by contacting the library by telephone or on line. You can come to a participating branch on Saturday to sign out others for dialogues. And through the TPL website, you can apply to be a 2011 human book.

Ellen will be at the Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street, a block north of Bloor. The library has chosen to focus on her membership in the Raging Grannies, her time working in Greenland, and her participation in the first Canada Corps mission to Ukraine’s Orange Revolution presidential election in 2004. She’ll talk about any of that with you, or just about anything else you’d like to discuss.

Please join Ellen on Sun. Oct. 31.
