”The Ethics of Estetics—Photography and Film in an Indigenous People’s Perspective”

Sami University of Applied Science, 24-25 October 2016


Lecture hall 01032

The seminar is engaging persons with experiences and research relating to film and photography in indigenous people’s context or addressing issues of ethic and esthetic in this regard. The key note speakers and students will discuss projects in this field. Against concrete examples, the discussions will turn around how work has been carried out, and shared experiences in order to support good practice for practitioners of audiovisual and visual representation, journalism and research. During pauses and breaks discussions with students and key note speakers can be arranged.
