Kwanda Art : ‘The Journey’ seeks to empower budding photographers

Developing Photography in Rwanda

In February 2016, Kwanda Art Foundation and Goethe-Institut Kigali teamed up to organize a photography workshop targeting young talents of Rwandan photography. The idea behind this photography workshop, which was facilitated by Jean Luc Dushime, was to support and promote the work of young Rwandan artists.   The training program was an opportunity for young Rwandan photographers to work toward the creation of a photo series.  Eight Rwandan photographers were able to participate, and each photographer produced a series of images based on a theme that had previously been evoked by Jean Luc Dushime: celebrations, nightlife, studio portraiture, and documentary portraiture in situ, everyday life, and many more. In this way, each new series was both a unique homage to the Rwandan photographer and a creative exploration of the multiple facets of contemporary Rwanda. From 21–28 April 2016 ,8 Photographers had an exhibition at The Goethe Institut with the Theme of “The Journey” “The Journey” examines how photographs document and represent time and space. This exhibition seeks to unpack the factors that invent new identities and ways of seeing within and around urban environments. This includes subjects such as socio-economic positioning, cultural shifts toward popular cultures; globalization and digital advances of cultural production. Further themes that are explored in “The Journey” are post-colonial re-readings of relics throughout our cities and spaces, and the role of transitions and transformations within this newly envisioned environments.
