This event has finished

Organiser: Hub Cymru Africa

Location: Liberty Stadium

See bottom of page for location details

A one day conference for people working in or interested in the International Development sector in Wales

One of our confirmed main speakers for the event is Peter Di Campo, a documentary photographer whose goal is to contribute his work to a dialogue on international development and perceptions of Africa. He began his career as a Peace Corps Volunteer and a traditional photojournalist — now, his work seeks to deconstruct that experience. He is a co-founder of Everyday Africa, the Instagram-based project that has blossomed into a global phenomenon, and he is a regular speaker in classrooms and workshops on media stereotypes and the promotion of localized storytelling.

There will be an array of workshops focused on education, communications, diaspora, fair Trade and Health and we will have an audience discussion on the implementation of the new Well Being of Future Generations Act – what does this legislation mean for development in Wales?
