EVENTS / PHOTO: Chachipe Youth Photography Exhibition (MACEDONIA)

The Open Society Foundations, the Foundation Open Society - Macedonia and the Embassy of Hungary in Skopje cordially invite you to the opening of the

Chachipe Youth Photography Exhibition

Youth Cultural Center, Quay Dimitar Vlahov bb, Skopje, Macedonia

April 6, 2012, 11 a.m.

Curated by Gabriella Csizek, the exhibition will feature a selection of photographs from the Chachipe Youth international photography contest which was launched in November 2008 by the Open Society Foundations and OSA Archivum.

Chachipe Youth—chachipe means truth or reality in Romanes—invited submissions of photographs taken in the Decade of Roma Inclusion countries from young people aged 12 through 25. The contest sought to combat negative stereotypes, break with prejudiced portrayals and, through the lens of young people, present a more complex and more nuanced depiction of Europe’s largest ethnic minority, the Roma.

For more information and photos, see the Chachipe website and Facebook page.
