    In June 2014 I facilitated a participatory photography project with young people in a slum of Kenya in collaboration with A-Step, a community-based organisation. Through the use of photographs, the project aimed at offering a tool to members of different tribes to tell their stories in relation to the events that occurred during the 2007/2008 Kenya Post-Election Violence, to show the progress that has been make towards peace and to highlight the barriers that are still present. It also worked towards initiating a dialogue leading to a mutual understanding and to the identification of positive solutions to achieve peace in the community. An exhibition of the photos and stories produced through this project was held at the 2014 International Peace Research Association (IPRA) Conference in Istanbul, Turkey, and at the 2015 Head on Photo Festival in Sydney, Australia.

    Here is the photo album produced from the project:
