Reverse your vision!

Reverse 1Sofia, June 3 2016

It’s dedicated to the Scholarship programme for Roma medical students which for a ninth year is giving the chance to young educated and highly motivated Roma young people to develop further their knowledge and professional experience in the field of healthcare.
The camera flips the images upside down, the same is with the human eye and our brain turns them around and puts them “right side up”. Prejudice is in our heads and they change the way we perceive the world.

Despite! - Tenth edition of ForumKEY

THE HAT! Sofia, April 9 2016

On April 9, 2016 the stage of the Independent Theatre was the place where the 10th edition of ForumKEY happened.
