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.
