DIGNITY Vancouver is a one night photography exhibition and auction that raises funds and awareness for Acumen Fund, a not-for-profit venture fund eradicating global poverty.
Hosted by VANCOUVER+acumen, the event is curated by Nuru Project, a group using photography for social change, who have contributed 21 prints taken in India, Pakistan and East Africa by world-renowned photographers to be sold via live and silent auction.
The event is hosted in Vancouver Urban Winery‘s gorgeous space in Gastown and event highlights include incredible food from local-restaurateurs, stunning photography for live and silent auction and a keynote from Seattle-based DIGNITY 2012 poster photographer, Kirk Mastin.
In support of local social enterprise, Hope in Shadows, five prints from their annual photography contest for residents in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside will be auctioned.
*Tickets include one complementary drink, appetizers, photography exhibit, keynote from Kirk Mastin and live entertainment!

WHERE THE FUNDS GO
Minus our expenses, which we do our absolute best to keep to a minimum, 100% of all ticket proceeds and on-site event sales go directly to Acumen Fund. 50% of all photo sales go to Acumen Fund with 25% to support Nuru Project and 25% to support the photographer of the print.
DIGNITY has been hosted 12 times in 10 cities around the world raising over $150K for Acumen Fund. In 2011, DIGNITY Vancouver raised $13K and was attended by 250+ Vancouver-based professionals interested in social innovation, international development, photography and art.
