Helping Congolese Women "Out of the Mines" – A Photography Exhibition

Helping Congolese Women "Out of the Mines" – A Photography Exhibition

HEAR Congo, an organization focused on empowering Congolese women, is holding a week-long exhibition from March 15 through March 22 to honor Women’s History Month and fundraise for their efforts in the DRC. Titled “Out of the Mines,” the event will showcase the extraordinary artistry of young Congolese women, including features of their magnificent garments, hair ornaments, crafts, art, music and dance. The exhibit showcases several Congolese women and children photographed by world renowned Barry Harley, including two Congolese girls Eliane and Niclette (pictured below) modeling some of the colorful clothes that they both designed and produced. Because of the HEAR Congo program, Eliane and Niclette were able to develop real skills (such as design and needlework) to escape not only the heinous work conditions in the cobalt mines but also the risk of sexual abuse from miners. Come join us to learn more about this inspiring mission. Opening Night will feature a celebratory night with refreshments, exclusive documentary and extended hours. On Wednesday, March 20, Harley will host a special opportunity of interpreting photos of women who escaped the dangerous artisanal mines. He will also be offering portraits of guests.
