New Pride Photo Nijmegen features artists in residence

This year we add Nijmegen to the growing list of cities that hosts a local Pride Photo Award program! Aptly named Pride Photo Nijmegen, the organizers present a number of events that obviously includes a chance to see many of the winning pictures from previous editions, currently on display at Het Roze Huis in Nijmegen.
 
Meanwhile, the Pride Photo Nijmegen Bus – a mobile exhibition space – will be touring the city, appearing at events such as Pink Wednesday and the Music Meeting as well as visiting local schools and communities. By exhibiting photos that celebrate the LGBT community in a number of public spaces, this exhibition reaches out to everybody.
 
“The goal of Pride Photo Nijmegen is to increase acceptance of the LGBT community through making human diversity visible,” says Sander Ederveen, the coordinator of the exhibition. “Pride Photo Nijmegen is about freedom. That is its core.”
 
And there’s more! In addition to the exhibitions, you can join a writing workshop given by Loesje, famous in The Netherlands for their witty and thought-provoking posters.
 
The most ambitious part of the Nijmegen program is an artist in residence project at the Besiendershuis. Risk Hazekamp, a photographer and previous winner of Pride Photo Award (2012) will be working together with writer Tania Witte on non –normative identities.
 
Don’t miss the exhibition at Het Roze Huis, St Anthoniusplaats 1, until 4th June, and look out for the Pride Photo Bus, which will be touring the city until September.
