Volunteer Opportunity – Call for Photography Submissions

“Common Threads” is a celebration of solidarities between the indigenous peoples of the Philippines and Guatemala. In order to explore their common colonial histories, and to learn from their struggles and victories, UBC students will be presenting about their work with Filipino and Guatemalan indigenous communities at the First Nations Longhouse on September 14, 2012. In lieu of this gathering, a photography exhibit will be housed at the Global Lounge throughout the month.

We invite you to submit a photograph on the theme of cultural resistance, either taken in the Philippines or Guatemala.

Kindly send your attached file along with the following information to ubccommonthreads@gmail.com on or before August 31, Friday.

– Full name
– Title of photograph

More details about the event.

This gathering is sponsored by the Global Fund, organised by the UBC Philippine Studies Series (PSS) and the UBC International Students Association (ISA).
