This panel brings together two prize-winning photographers and the Director of the Hamwe festival in Rwanda to discuss questions in the context of Nigeria, Uganda, and Rwanda. The discussants will look at the creative process in responding to crisis, the relationship of the artist with their subjects, the circulation of these stories, and the ways in which other fields, particularly health and social care, are responding to this work.

'The panel will also remember Aisha Bada, a talented photographer and health professional who spoke at the Hamwe festival and who sadly died earlier this year'
