NOOR is excited to share the recently launched Reconstruction of Identities #RIO Project, a project aiming to promote and protect the richness of both national and European cultural heritage. The RIO Project will breathe life into small communities by stimulating cultural activities as an alternative communication method between locals and newcomers.
To enhance communication between foreigners and locals within such communities, RIO project aims to organise a wide-ranging programme of talks, conferences, guided tours, and book-signings; it promotes the opening of artists’ residencies, the organisation and circulation of exhibitions, and the lending of artworks to other museums or institutions; it aims at providing young and amateur photographers with educational resources, activities and workshops.

2018 marks 70 years since the expulsion and displacement of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes, villages and cities during the one-year conflict that created Israel in 1948. Since then, the Nakba (catastrophe), as it is known in Arabic to Palestinians, has been engraved in Palestinian collective consciousness as a story of relentless dispossession.
We are proud to share this new digital plateform where NOOR's Tanya Habjouqa collaborated together Amnesty International in producing this immersive photo-story on 70 years of Palestinian displacement.
Documenting Diversity: Staying Woke and Making Pictures A Panel Discussion with photographers Nina Berman, Lola Flash, and Ruddy Roye
Wednesday, October 17, 2018 6:30-8:30 pm NYU Tisch School of the Arts 721 Broadway, New York, NY Dean's Conference Room, 12th Floor
This event is co-sponsored with the NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Department of Photography and Imaging.
How do photographers authentically and confidently approach image-making when the photographer, audience, and subjects can be from diverse racial, class, and gender origins? How do photographers present their subjects in a way that ensures dignity, empowerment and inclusion? How do documentary photographers stay focused on issues that raise awareness of the social and political environment and get involved to influence the outcomes of these situations?
Presentations and panel discussion followed by a reception. Nina Berman will be signing copies of “An Autobiography of Miss Wish.”
