The "World Vision Experience: AIDS" exhibit, hosted by the First Presbyterian Church, is coming to Tulsa January 23 to 31.
The exhibit is a multimedia, interactive experience allowing visitors to step into the lives of actual children affected by HIV and AIDS in the hardest hit region of the world – Sub-Saharan Africa. There, about 22 million people are infected with the diseases, about two-thirds of the area’s population.
Visitors will walk through a replica of an African village and experience the effects of the pandemic in a real way as they listen to a personal audio track relating the story of one of three children – Olivia, Stephen, and Beatrice.
The AIDS exhibit has visited more than 100 cities since 2007, drawing more than 250,000 people. An additionial 25 cities are included this year, with an estimated draw of 100,000.
The event is free and open to the public from Saturday, Jan. 23 to Sunday, Jan. 31. The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
The exhibit is at The Powerhouse, 223 8th Street, in Tulsa.
