Join us at MSF's traveling exhibit + happy hour
We recently relaunched starvedforattention.org, with a fluid scrolling redesign and some fun HTML/jquery flairs. An initiative of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and VII Photo, “Starved for Attention,” is a multimedia campaign exposing the neglected and largely invisible crisis of childhood malnutrition.
Join Bluecadet on Friday Sept 30th when the traveling photo exhibit visits Philly. RSVP
We'll meet at the exhibit at Independence National Historical Park
6th and Arch Streets at 4pm on Friday.
At 5pm, we'll make our way over to National Mechanics
(22 South 3rd Street) for drinks.
MSF medical staff and aid workers—who have worked in malnutrition projects in the field–will guide visitors through a simulated clinic and describe how MSF works to treat and prevent malnutrition. Visitors will then be able to watch some of the Starved for Attention films, short multimedia documentaries about global malnutrition, and view stunning photographs from the series’ award-winning VII Photo Agency photojournalists.
Visitors will also be able to sign a petition demanding that policymakers improve the nutritional quality of U.S. food aid sent to young children overseas. This petition is a feature of our website - find one of the iPad-weilding staffers and add your signature!
The exhibit will be in Philly from Friday, September 30 to Sunday, October 2
(9 AM – 5 PM Daily).
