8x8 is taking place again this autumn in Ireland!

In Autumn 2014 Suas will again host the 8x8 Festival, a week-long awareness-raising initiative, in five college campuses in Ireland. The 2014 festival programme will feature award-winning photographers, engaging speaker events and a selection of documentary films. The festival will revolve around a high-profile touring photographic exhibit which aims to raise challenge perspectives of development and highlight innovations happening in the Global South.

Plans are well under way with photo entries being voted on as they come in, student working groups developing the exhibit concept and proposing additional events for their campus.

We feel that this is a very exciting opportunity. We have a chance to reach all students and to engage them with development and global issues in an exciting way. The exhibition is a brilliant opportunity to re-frame coverage of development issues in Ireland and to discuss the Millennium Development Goals in the countdown to 2015.
