Exhibition: ‘Hidden Gambia – a visual journey to the heart of The Gambia’: The culmination of over five months of our mentoring and masterclasses with ‘Creative Industries’ for the International Trade Centre (ITC) Andandorr Program, the launch of the first of many exhibitions showcasing the work created by extremely talented Gambian, and Gambia-based, photographers, and filmmakers – kudos and congratulations to ALL the ‘Creatives’ for producing such amazing work! We are so proud of you.

The exhibition was launched on Friday 26th November, 2021, in the beautiful surroundings of the garden of Alliance Française cultural centre, Banjul – and it will run through Dec 2nd, before moving on to its next location (TBD). Exquisite catering by Mampol and the team at Alliance Cafe.

A big hand also to the ITC team for working long hours, leading up to the opening, installing the exhibition – the first of its kind in The Gambia, using the ‘book frames’ idea. Which brings us around nicely to a shout out to the Photoville, NYC, team for the inspiration for the frames.

Huge thanks to ITC Gambia for bringing us both on board for the program with the Creatives, giving the opportunity to work with such gifted Gambian, and Gambia-based, photographers and filmmakers.
