Give a Child a Camera - Bringing Photography to Rural Africa.
Join us at Open Norwich to hear the heart-warming story of how Julian Claxton discovered a small community school in rural Africa, where he was able to give 50 Ugandan children the gift of photography.
In a presentation interspersed with video clips, Julian talks about the project he set up, the benefits it gave to the local community, the journey the children have been on, and how more than fifty children went from never having held a camera to producing wonderfully emotive images of their lives.
