Event Details

Join us for the Focus on the Story / Click DC Kickoff Party in Dupont Underground, the former subway spur that has been converted into an underground arts space.

Come meet many of the acclaimed photographers participating in Focus on the Story 2019, a series of talks and presentations taking place that weekend on the George Washington University campus. (If you are registered for Focus on the Story 2019, your registration includes entry into the Kickoff Party). Visit Facebook or Eventbrite to buy a ticket.

We’ll have music, cash bar, light appetizers and a special silent auction of photographs donated by select DC photographers. All proceeds raised from this event will benefit Focus on the Story, a nonprofit whose mission is to support visual storytelling that brings attention to critical issues, bridges cultural gaps and sparks social change.

Besides a popup gallery of the prints in our silent auction, we’ll also be projecting several photo exhibits, including:

  • * The winners of the 2019 Focus on the Story Awards.
  •  “I Witness,” which includes the work of 25 internationally-celebrated photojournalists who have contributed images that explore conflict – personal, internal, psychosocial, military, cultural and religious experiences.
  • The WPOW: Women Photojournalists of Washington’s traveling exhibit, including the winners from their 2018 call for entries.
  • The winners from a special Your Shot – National Geographic “focus on the story” call for entries.
  •  Work from Women Street Photographers curated by founder Gulnara Samoilova, one of the speakers at Focus on the Story 2019.
  •  And more….
