2014 marks the 20th commemoration of the Genocide of the Tutsi in Rwanda. Over 800,000 victims in three months only, while the West closed its eyes. Since then, the new government has promoted a strong reconciliation policy and introduced important social transformations aimed at creating a « new Rwanda » where a genocide would not be possible. However, the memory of the massacres is very much present in the daily life of Rwandans today, and the authoritarian control of the government strongly limits the freedom of expression in a country where all references to ethnicity have been abolished.

Questo corso è complementare a quello del giorno precedente, si tratta di effettuare prove pratiche sul campo con un numero ristretto di partecipanti (max 10).
È il corso ideale per chi inizia. Questo corso introduce infatti gli appassionati di elaborazione digitale alle possibilità creative e tecniche offerte da Photoshop, partendo dalle basi.
In questo corso imparerai ad utilizzare il flash della reflex, sia quello incorporato che quello esterno a slitta.
The purpose of this training experience is to fully explore a subject matter that truly touches the individual participant, and to investigate it thoroughly.
