Transition Photography workshop – Apply now!
Again, we join forces with artists Bayryam Bayryamali and Krasimira Butseva, with whom we worked on discussions about the so-called “Revival process” in the village of Oreshari and at our summer school in Belene. We invite you to participate in an upcoming workshop to create a zine with your own photography project, family photos or different kind of photography materials related to the subject of transition. 1989 is the beginning of key changes for Eastern Europe.
