A piece of Sri Lanka – A project by International Alert
Posted on May 2, 2016 at 8:06 am




We are delighted to announce calls for submissions for ‘A piece of Sri Lanka’ – a photo story project designed to link Sri Lankan diaspora members with their country of heritage. Using the medium of the arts, it aims to help create a space and narrative for how diaspora members choose to relate back to Sri Lanka.

Tell us about your relationship with Sri Lanka by sharing the photograph of an object – be it personal, cultural or religious – that connects you back to your heritage.

Your story will help us a create a space where people can connect with one another, whilst ensuring that different narratives of experiences are respected.

To participate, please send us a picture of your object with a short story answering the following three questions:

  • Tell us a bit about yourself and your background
  • Why did you choose this object? What is the story behind it?
  • How does this object help you relate to Sri Lanka?

Please submit to: HWijetunga@international-alert.org 

Pictures can be taken with a smartphone or camera (please indicate what you use to take the picture)

Your picture will be submitted to a review panel.  Selected pictures (and their stories) will be displayed on our website, Instagram and Facebook.

Please also helps us spread the word about the project on Twitter (@intalert), by sharing the image above using the hashtag#PieceOfSL
