Dispatches from Ukraine: Does visual storytelling enable advocacy?
22 April @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
On the 22nd of April, ART WORKS Projects and The Hague Humanity Hub invite you for a preview of a photography exhibition on Ukraine; a discussion on the role of visual advocacy tools in activating change; and a networking event, titled ‘Dispatches from Ukraine: Does visual storytelling enable advocacy?’
From 15:00 in the Humanity Hub City Centre Café, AWP is presenting the preview of an exhibition, “Fleeing Mother Russia’s Fury”, featuring the work of one of AWP’s collaborating documentary photographers, Wil Sands. This is Sand’s second exhibition with AWP. In 2016 he presented “Waiting for Mother Russia – In Two Acts,” documenting the daily tensions between pro-Russian and pre-Western residents of Eastern Ukraine in 2016.
From 16:00, guests will be able to hear Sands speak about the work in conversation with Kateryna Radchenko, the founder and curator of Odesa Photo Days, an international festival of contemporary photography founded in 2015. The idea for the festival came about in 2014, the year the war in Ukraine started and was a response to the outbreak of propaganda and media manipulation.
Following the moderated conversation, there will be an audience discussion on the role that visual advocacy tools have in activating change, whether it be advocacy, direct aid, policy, and more.
At the end of the event, we look forward to welcoming all those in attendance for networking and drinks.
The Hague Humanity Hub is delighted to welcome ART WORKS Projects (AWP) as a new member of its community as well as to The Hague’s broad ecosystem of those working towards a more peaceful and just world.
