Operation Broken Silence: WORKING TOWARDS A NEW STORYTELLING EXPERIENCE
students from across Tennessee lay the groundwork for our first photo exhibit
The University of Memphis serves as the host of the Governor’s School for International Studies which takes place on the U of M Campus each year during the month of June. This year featured a presentation and workshop led by Operation Broken Silence’s Executive Director Mark Hackett on June 24.
Following a brief presentation about Sudan and our work, we presented the students with the task of laying the ground work for our first photo exhibit about Sudan, which we hope to have ready to tour locally here in Memphis in the Fall and possibly nationally in the Spring. The students then worked together for several hours to come up with a list of potential places that would host the exhibit, identified several grants we could apply for to help fund the project, and designed a marketing strategy to help promote the project when it is ready to open to the public.
We would like to thank the University of Memphis International Studies program for this opportunity, as well as the students who participated and exhibited a high degree of professionalism throughout the day. We were very impressed with your intellect, organizational skills, and passion for international issues!
