Artist Reception – Gina DaCruz – “People I Met One Day”

April 6, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Come Join Us for a combined Art Opening and WEEMA Fundraiser Event at NU Cafe, 335 Chandler Street, Worcester, MA on Saturday, April 6th from 1-3pm.

Gina DaCruz’s current series of paintings titled “People I Met One Day” are inspired by her visit to Ethiopia in 2011. Her artwork will be featured at NU Cafe for the month of April with a portion to benefit WEEMA International. Gina will be performing a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony during the event, complete with roasting green coffee beans, incense and lively Ethiopian music.
Come learn about WEEMA’s current projects that are in action right now in Ethiopia, and learn about our future projects and collaborations. (WEEMA International is a non-governmental organization working in southwestern Ethiopia. Our goal is to work with local communities to create conditions in which people can thrive and dream about a brighter future. Many Ethiopians do not have access to some of the basic necessities for human survival and dignity—clean water, education, economic opportunity and adequate healthcare. When we can meet those needs, through community-driven collaboration, we can dramatically improve people’s quality of life and make the world a better place.) Please check out 
 for more information about our organization.

This event is open to the public.
