Photo and Art Exhibition Raises Awareness on Water Sanitation Woes
A photo exhibition showcasing the works of Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Film & Media Studies (FMS) students while on a reporting trip to Cambodia, will raise awareness of the water sanitation problems that developing countries face.
Titled ‘The Demon in the Water’, the exhibition will be held from 27th of November to 3rd December 2008, at Vivocity’s South Avenue. 14 photographs portraying the problems of water sanitation in Cambodia will be showcased at the exhibition.
This is the official International Year of Sanitation. As such, the World Toilet Organisation will also be displaying pieces of toilet seat art by the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts Students and Lasalle College of the Arts.
The reporting trip, organised in early September as part of Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s collaboration with Lien Aid, a local non-governmental organisation, saw 6 FMS students travel to three locations in Cambodia to document the lives of the locals.
Focusing on arsenic poisoning, poor water sanitation and open defecation, the photographs will bring across the message of how others lead their lives in other parts of the world, and how solutions are being come up with to help them.
Admission to the exhibition is free.
