Experience the power of visual storytelling at the ASEF roundtable, "Framing the Future: Photography's Influence on Climate Awareness in Southeast Asia," presented in partnership with the Embassy of the Netherlands in Viet Nam and the NOOR Foundation.
This compelling conversation includes a diverse panel of photographers, journalists, and scientists that will delve into the pivotal role photography has in shaping the narrative of climate crisis in Southeast Asia.
Complementing this conversation is a digital exhibition featuring photographs that capture the profound impact of climate crisis in Southeast Asia. These striking visuals have been created by the artists during a 6-month residency programme organised by the NOOR Foundation in Hanoi, making this event a unique opportunity to witness the intersection of art & environment. Join us in exploring the power of photography in raising climate crisis awareness.
The event will be followed by a cocktail reception.
