Theme: “Ethical Documentation of Migration Stories”
In the framework of universal access to information through improved narratives on migration, UNESCO Regional Office, Abuja has commissioned Art for Humanity Foundation to empower some visual storytellers on ethical issues as relate to migration.
This is therefore, a call for photojournalists/documentary photographers who have the creative ability to ethically document migrants and migration stories in Nigeria as an intervention to positively reframe the narratives surrounding migration.
Visual storytelling has a vital role to play in dispelling myths about migrants and returnees and rebuilding the social fabric in their communities of origin and destination. Holistic photo reportage can remind us that migration is not a one-sided story, and that the testimony of each migrant in Nigeria is as diverse as the country’s multi-ethnic design.
