OPEN CALL: KNOWING YOU- 2

Knowing You is a photography project working with women of different faiths and backgrounds to inspire bonding, creativity and community cohesion.

‘Knowing You’ is a photography and community project that aims to erase barriers, foster cohesion, acceptance and creativity using photography and storytelling to produce photostories based on the participants.  The first ‘Knowing You’ project took place with women of White City and it culminated in the creation of powerful stories and photographs collected in a Knowing You photo book

The Knowing You project is among the 40 selected projects ‘deemed exceptional’ and has received a Recognised Award from the Faith & Belief Forum  and Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith for having provided support, respite and are working to make London a city that is inclusive to everyone and continuing to do so despite the challenges posed by the current pandemic.

Photojournalism Hub will be running a women photography project ‘Knowing You-2’ starting on the 13th March 2021 (to be confirmed).

We invite women living in London W12 to express their interest in joining in this wonderful free project by contacting cinzia@photojournalismhub.org

The project is kindly supported by the National Lottery

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

We are witnessing disregard for basic human rights in every continent: restricted access to health care, lack of government transparency, deepened poverty, inadequate financial protection, racial discrimination and increased risk of domestic abuse.  Covid-19 has exacerbated this pre-existing damage and what we are witnessing day after day is the culmination, or rather the unravel, of years of political, social and economic failure.

We are looking for contributors whose work highlights the social injustices and inequalities that are being intensified or laid bare by Covid-19. Entries are currently showcased in a monthly journal, however the Photojournalism Hub team is working towards a printed edition of the Journal and a major events to foster awareness and advocate for changes.
