Event description

Description

There will also be a Meaningfulworld Photo Exhibit at the United Nations. The photographs were taken during MeaningfulWorld’s humanitarian missions to Africa, Haiti, and Armenia. They depict the challenges people in these countries have been confronted within the past decade as the result of natural and human-made disasters.
Meaningfulworld feels passionately about sharing these moving photographs with the United
Nations diplomates, academia, and the public to both educate as well as nurture a dialogue around
humanitarian challenges, and how to transform pain and trauma into peace and meaning-making.

This moving Photo Exhibit will be on display Monday 23 October through Friday 27
October, 2017 at the UN’s lower level near the Vienna Cafe and conference rooms. A closing
reception and awards ceremony will be held on Thursday evening at 6:15 PM, 26 October, 2017.

Through exhibiting these 50 photos, our goals are to:
❖ Celebrate human resilience in times of disasters (both
natural and human-made);
❖ Raise awareness of the impact of our actions on others
❖ Share and connect international humanitarian workers
❖ Transform the multiple challenges facing humanity
❖ Inspire a dialogue for creating and maintaining peace.

Photographers: Haik Kocharian, Dr. Ani Kalayjian, Dr. Leslie Popoff, Dr. Daria Diakonova,
Lorraine Simmons, and Karen Gargaryan.

*Registration is mandatory. This exhibit is within the UN proper and is not open to the
general public. To view the exhibit and attend the reception you must register by 21 October in
order to secure a pass to enter the UN. Payment must be made online at the time of registration.
