Stand.ie's 8x8 Festival

Focusing on development issues inside and outside of Ireland, the 8x8 Festival hopes to shed greater light on the structures and challenges experienced by people as the world around them changes. With a range of events occurring across campuses around Ireland, including workshops with film makers and photojournalists, photography exhibitions and film screenings the event aims to provide a new perspective on dominant narratives surrounding development.

The photography exhibition pictured above is in place outside the Berkeley Library in Trinity College, Dublin from the 6th to the Friday, the 10th of October. The selection includes photographs from Marcus Bleasdale, Jim Xu and Sally Hayden and will also be on display in other universities on later dates.

More information is available on the festival website.

I was asked by Gráinne Carley of Suas to participate in a working group for the selection and organisation of some aspects of this festival. I would like to thank her for including me in this project; it has given me far more than I could ever hope to contribute.
