NOVEMBER 7, 2007. MONTREAL, CANADA. Project Health Optimism Prevention Education, (HOPE) is an art exhibition and auction taking place from March 21, 2008 to April 4, 2008 at Galerie Dentaire located at 1239 rue Amherst in downtown Montréal, Quebec, Canada.
The works that are available for exhibit and auction represent local, national and international painters, photographers and sculptors of both emerging and established creative stature.
Initially a fundraising effort to help raise much needed funding for AIDS Community Care Montreal/Sida bénévoles Montréal so they may continue the exemplary work they have provided in the field of HIV/AIDS for the past 2 decades, (and to assist with their ongoing provisioning of programs, services and supports for People Living With HIV/AIDS), the true impetus behind this event is to raise awareness of a disease that effects over 40 million people worldwide.
