“Picturing Gender Equality” Photography Initiative
With the financial support of the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Lebanon, and in collaboration with Dar al Mussawir and Zakira, ABAAD launched in 2013 “Picturing Gender Equality,” a photography initiative targeting youth, and aiming at depicting positive masculinity in everyday life in Lebanon.
A number of photography aficionados and professionals attended the workshop. ABAAD team members introduced the initiative and concepts related to gender, gender equality and positive masculinity, while Dar Al Mussawir explained the technical requirements for the submission of photographs. All submitted photos were displayed at the Closing Ceremony of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence in December 2013.
