The first 50 persons to visit the exhibition will receive the book Echo, the Silent Outsider
The fundraising event/exhibition will offer the press and community supporters a chance to meet some of the artists and those involved with assembling the show.

 “We need to urgently raise funds to continue operation activities, advocacy efforts, and awareness of the struggle of those who have been diagnosed with mental illness,” said NAEMI’s Founder Juan Martin, “our ultimate goal is to help these artists gain recognition to fight the stigma that so often accompanies a mental illness.”


One of their goals is to continue working on efforts for an exhibition titled “Solo estamos vivos cuando soñamos”“We are only alive when we dream”. This will be a unique and extraordinary exhibition of pinhole camera photography created by artists from the Borda Hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Through fundraiser activities, the show will travel to Miami and Spain.
