Photographic Workshop in Mathare Slum, Nairobi
by Filippo Romano and Francesco Giusti
Slum’s Insiders is a photographic workshop oriented to
the exploration, experience and visual narration of urban,
social and human territory of Mathare slums in Nairobi.
Participants will work individually, side by side with young inhabitants, guides and translators, as well as slum’s active subjects, daily sharing
the making up of the visual narration.
We believe in the workshop participating formula, able to reproduce
the complexity of the place , first of all by listening and observing
those who live in the place itself.
We will analyse the typical stereotypes which are usually used to describe slums in the world, looking, on the contrary, for new points
of view and a more authentic understandig.
An intense editing of all images will be shared by the group at the end
of each day.
The workshop will be concluded by a public and itinerant projection
inside the slum, where each participant will find the opportunuty
to reach a practical aim and present his work to the community.
A good knowledge of the English language is required.
Each participant will use his own photo/video equipment.
Subscription: 600 euros, included overnight stay, local transport
and guide, not included flight and meals.
(max 14 participants)
deadline for subscriptions: 31 May 2012
The workshop’s subscriptions will contribute to a coming web platfom project for young artists and concerned self orginized active groups
