) invites Videographers to apply to have their work be considered for “This is my story: Dialogue with Pakistan” – For the first time in Pakistan, an exhibition and awareness campaign will address issues pertaining to violence, displacement and reconciliation. A unique exploration of the human experience of the Pakistani conflict through film, the spoken word, and photography combined in a public exhibition and an electronic and social media campaign. It will be a collective memory of untold suffering, compassion, and paradox. This opportunity marks the first time that Videographers will explore how conflict has impacted arts and culture, families and communities in Pakistan. We hope to initiate dialogue through these personal portraits. The Videographers will recreate impact zones and experiences through various exhibits which we hope will engage emotions of the general public, and elicit responses to the trauma and horror of war and conflict. The exhibits would take the spectator through a series of real life traumatic experiences, which would culminate in installations portraying how the current situation can be compared to other scenarios in Pakistan’s history. “This is my story: Dialogue with Pakistan” will feature 30 artists from throughout Pakistan in two multi-‐media exhibitions in Karachi and Lahore. We are looking for Videographers who have worked in and around conflict zones and are interested in documenting the impact of violence on the Pakistani population. Preference will be given to applicants with works that are documentary in nature. The selected Videographers will work in a series of collaborative workshops spearheaded by members of the CAP board of directors-‐ Filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Photographer Amean J., and Creative Designer Ali Mumtaz.
