My friend & linguist Sophie and I are putting out an exhibition of Ikakumo children’s photos and videos at SOAS, London (May 20-21) and PICS Festival 2013 at RichMix, London (June 8).
In July 2013, the exhibition will travel to Ikakumo and Ibadan, Nigeria. Later in the year we plan to launch the dedicated project website and publish an online version of the exhibition catalogue. You all are very welcome to come along to the event near you!
