Development Progress Special Event: Through the people’s lens

Feb. 26, 2015 - Feb. 26, 2015

26 February 2015 19:00 - 22:30 (GMT+01 (BST)) 

Public event 

Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR

The Overseas Development Institute invites you to join an evening of lively discussion on shifting narratives and images of development progress.

With unprecedented access to technology, those at the grassroots can now tell their own stories direct to a world stage. How does this challenge perceptions of development? And what does this mean for the traditional story-tellers – journalists, photographers, film-makers and charities?

The evening will feature a keynote speaker and expert panel debate, with plenty of opportunity for guests to meet people from different disciplines, explore the exhibition, and enjoy complimentary drinks and nibbles inspired by the six countries that feature in the project.

All welcome. Admission free.
