Thursday, October 15 2009

Boston International is excited to co-sponsor the exclusive Boston launch of DARFUR/DARFUR with the MIT Center for International Studies.

The event commences in the Kirsch Auditorium with a panel discussion featuring Robert Rotberg, Director, Belfer Center’s Program on Intrastate Conflict and Conflict Resolution, Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government; Susannah Sirkin, Deputy Director, Physicians for Human Rights; and Marcus Bleasdale, a photojournalist and member of the DARFUR/DARFUR team. The event concludes in the TSMC Lobby with the DARFUR/DARFUR exhibit and reception.

DARFUR/DARFUR is a traveling exhibit of digitally-projected images that provide visual education about the richly multi-cultural region while exposing the horrors of the ongoing humanitarian crisis. The exhibit is a product of Art Works Projects and curated by Leslie Thomas, founding director of Art Works Projects.

Photographers include former U.S. Marine Brian Steidle and photojournalists Lynsey Addario, Mark Brecke, Helene Caux, Ron Haviv, Paolo Pellegrin, James Nachtwey, Ryan Spencer Reed, and Michal Safdie edited by Matthew Jacob and accompanied by Sudanese inspired music.
