Description of Resource

Showcases the photographs taken by Bhutanese children living in Nepali refugee camps. In 1998, Tiffany Fairey, co-founder of PhotoVoice, established the Rose Class to encourage the children to use photography and writing to express the hopes and fears associated with living in a refugee status. Since its inception, the project has involved over 3000 refugee youth in exhibitions, art workshops with the local Nepali children, writing and art classes, video documentaries, and publication of a monthly newspaper with a circulation of 2000. Many participants have gained employment skills and income as journalists or artists. Exhibitions have been displayed in Kathmandu, London, Paris, and New York.
