23 years of drik

Dear Friend,

Drik invites you to celebrate 23 years of its existence with a series of special events.

National Geographic Photographer and Humanitarian Reza Deghati will be with us on Tuesday, 4 September 2012, 6.00 pm at Drik Gallery.

Artist and curator Wakilur Rahman will deliver the fourth Golam Kasem Daddy Lecture Series and Majority World will present Insider, outsider?, a photography exhibition that challenges perceptions of the developing world.

A special display of vintage photographic prints from the Drik archives presents a unique opportunity of special interest to art collectors, but these rare prints will also appeal to the photo enthusiast. This will be the first ever sale of these prints.

Moving News to Digital Platforms, Drik’s unique initiative to create a network of Rural Visual Journalists will also be presented.

Do join us,


The programme will be live cast at www.drik.tv (12 noon GMT).
