Bo’nna – From my point of view

Tuesday, 8th of December 2015

The opening of the photographic exhibition “Bo’nna – from my point of view” was held at the Arts and Craft Centre in Ga-Rankuwa, Pretoria.

The exposition is the result of an exceptional collaboration between the Embassy of Italy and the Municipality of Tshwane, in partnership with the NGO Oxfam Italia, the Italian Institute of Culture, UN Volunteers and Open Window Institute.

Twenty eight learners of the Rivoningo Primary School of Soshanguve - between the age of 8 and 10 - had the opportunity to be introduced to photography and to view and describe their everyday life with “different lenses”. Digital cameras were provided by the Italian Embassy and UN Volunteers, while a workshop was organized in October by students of the Open Window Institute.


 

 

 

 

This project is also linked to the campaign “Be a good sport”, sponsored by the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) in collaboration with many Italian institutions and associations. The aim of the initiative is to bring back the values of sport and “fair play” in everyday life, by promoting the ethical principles of friendly competition among students and teachers.

The opening of the exhibition – composed by 56 images, two for each child – was followed by a prize-giving ceremony, with the participation on representatives of the Italian Embassy, the Municipality of Tshwane and of all the partners and sponsors involved. More expositions will be organized at Rivoningo Primary School and at Open Window Institute.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trophies and special prizes were awarded to Itumeleng Moleko for the “Best Image”, to Nhleketo Nkanyane for category “Who I am”, to Duduzile Mahlangu for category “My Heritage” and to Ntokozo Maluleka for category “To be a good sport”.

Furthermore, all the learners received a gift from the Lego Foundation.
