Slideshow, NOPA-benefitting gear raffle set for Sat., April 13

Momenta Workshops, a Washington DC-based photojournalism and social documentary photography organization, is inviting anyone with an interest in photography or the work of local nonprofits to a slideshow and party on the evening of Saturday, April 13, at the NOPA gallery.

The event is to include a raffle, with all proceeds benefitting NOPA. Prizes will include camera equipment, ranging from photo books to camera bags, free licenses of Photo Mechanic, SD cards, jump drives and more. 

The event will begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 13 at the NOPA Gallery. It is being presented by Momenta in connection with its Project New Orleans 2013 workshop.

A cocktails and conversations hour will kick off the event, with the slideshow set to begin at the gallery at 8 p.m. The NOPA gallery is located at 1111 St. Mary St. in,  the Crescent City’s Lower Garden District.

The slideshow and party is formally billed as a celebration of the work of New Orleans nonprofits. It will feature the work of students of the Momenta workshop, which is aimed at assisting photographers interested in documenting the work of nonprofits, communities and others involved in the city’s post-Katrina recovery.

The Project New Orleans 2013 workshop begins Wednesday, April 10, at the NOPA gallery, with final lectures set for the afternoon of Sunday, April 15.

Prizes for the NOPA-benefitting raffle are coming from Momenta, along with Leica Camera, PNY Technologies, Photo Mechanic and Roberts Camera.
