Earlier this year, Hub Cymru Africa and Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel held a photography competition as part of our ongoing "Reframing the Narrative" campaign. It was judged by photographers with links to both Wales and Africa: Takura Aldridge Nyamowa, Glenn Edwards and Justice Kalebe.
In this podcast, Faith Israel, Diaspora and Inclusion Officer at Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel, is joined by Takura Aldridge Nyamowa, one of the photography competition judges. They discuss informed consent and its many facets within photography from the perspective of both small groups and Non-Governmental Organisations.
Takura is an architectural designer and portrait photographer studying in Wales and working in Zimbabwe. He co-founded the SSAP Youth Leadership Network and the Cardiff University Zimbabwean Society, both of which engage African diaspora communities in Wales.
Faith is a diaspora and inclusion officer at SSAP and political thinker interested in the interconnected struggles for liberation and ways of working towards this in the now. They have an academic background in international politics and racialisation and have worked within the international development sector focusing on the African diaspora and their development potential. In their work at SSAP with HCA they focus on anti-racism, inclusion and leveraging diaspora knowledge within global solidarity. Additionally, they are passionate about political memory, blackness in art and the black British experience.
This is part of the Hub Cymru Africa podcast series that are being recorded with support from the Welsh Government and the FCDO Small Charities Challenge Fund.
