    • artrisingposterfinal

Please join us at a reception to meet Boniface Mwangi and to see his exhibit of photographs telling the story of his journey from photo jounrnalist to activist on Wednesday, October, 15th at 6pm at the Fredric Jameson Gallery, Friedl Building. If you would like to know when you can meet him, please contact Kathryn Mathers () directly.

Kenyan photographer and activist Boniface Mwangi whose photographs defined western news media’s representations of the 2007 Kenyan general elections will be visiting Duke between the 15th and 17th October to meet with Duke students  and faculty and engage in debate about a new ethics of humanitarianism and global activism. His visit is funded by the Duke Africa Initiative and hosted by the International Comparative Studies Program with the support of  DukeAfrica. We will also be exhibiting his photographs in the Fredric Jameson Gallery. Boniface founded Picha Mtaani (http://pichamtaani.org/about/the-project/), a street exhibition that showcased his post-election violence photographs and used images to help Kenyans to reflect on the national tragedy, engage in honest dialogue, seek counseling  and plan for next steps and community action. He also runs PAWA254 (http://www.pawa254.org/) a unique social enterprise and collaborative space for creative youth to make a social impact through the visual arts. He is the subject of a documentary film co-produced by Kathryn Mathers and Cassandra Herrman called FRAMED (framedthefilm.com) which reframes the conversation about change-making in Africa and engages with young Americans about how they can contribute to this process. We will be filming Boniface as he engages with Duke Students and others interested in exploring new ways of ‘doing good’ in the world.
