Establishing a festival – Nayantara Gurung Kakshapati

Event info

Nayantara Gurung Kakshapati runs Photo Kathmandu, a biennial photo-festival that, from small beginnings, has grown to be renowned for its engagement with community, with urban architecture, and with the region. This lecture will look at how the festival has grown, how it links the local, the regional, and the international. It will also examine how the photo-festival has developed a burgeoning internationalism in photography, and ask what this means for the future of photographic arts.

This two-hour talk and Q+A is part of a series of eight aiming at creating  connections between the processes of making work and how local, international, ethical, creative and commercial concerns overlap in the  showing, publishing, and dissemination of  work. The talks will examine the photobook, the exhibition, the archive, collaborative work, the photo-festival, power, and regional identities. Each talk stands alone, but forms part of the series.  

The series runs from 3 March-21 April and is available at a discounted rate when compared to attending each talk individually. See details of the full series here:
