Description:

In the Swedish municipality of Gävle, photographer Tomas Gunnarsson looked for and found new ways to reflect the area’s population in the city’s official media materials. With his photographs, he shows how important it is for all of us to combat discrimination on the basis of gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation and age.

Have you thought about how you look at other people and society in general? Have you never divided those around you into specific roles or applied stereotypes to them? In this workshop with Gunnarsson, we will inspire each other to look more broadly, share our experiences and also generate ideas for the realisation of a project like this in Latvia.
