Kigali Center for Photography is organizing the first ever Kigali Photo Festival . Taking place this June in Kigali, Rwanda, part of it is a workshop which is targeting for 6 photographers and 6 writers.
Are you an enthusiastic photographer or writer, and interested to take part in this workshop, here is the chance to apply;
Facilitated by Billy Kahora, Sarah Waiswa and Liz Hingley, the workshop is to focus is on Human Rights Cultures. We’ll be asking:
- How can photography and writing explore rights that are important to Rwandans today?
- What are the creative ways in which artists can engage with everyday issues relating to human rights through their work?
- And how can we imagine rights that are specifically Rwandan: that extend and complicate international structures?
Also to be explored, is a range of specific skills relevant for photography and writing. These were identified in conversation with Rwandan photographers and writers over the past year. Some sessions will involve the whole group working together, most will be specifically for writers or photographers (who will be separated into two groups).
