OTYO! (A Sigh of Relief) at The 14th Annual SVAFF!

We had a successful weekend, and a meaningful experience at the 14th Annual Silicon Valley African Film Festival! We are grateful for the opportunity, and we are looking forward to next year! We met and networked with many amazing visitors, vendors, organizers, and cause-workers. It was a fantastic opportunity to network. We sold several pieces of artwork from our African collection, raising the largest amount of funding ever for a single event! Thank you, everyone!
