Highlights from our ongoing project “Photography and Visual Literacy for Active Citizenship” (PVLAC). The programme offers augmented training in photography basics and advanced technical skills, weaves in essential topics such as representation and visual literacy, and introduces students to the key ideas which form the basis of contemporary debate, as well as techniques for conscience photography. Currently we are collaborating with Department of Journalism and Communication, Makerere University in Kampala and are supported by Culture At Work Africa.
