Did you know 5% of the worlds' population holds 70% of all cultures? This exhibition is a celebration of those indigenous and under-represented cultures, framed by some of the most talented visual storytellers who look at the world through a multicultural and non-binary lens.

By organizing a global indigenous photo competition each year, Sinchi Foundation calls upon these visual storytellers to be recognized for their commitment to cultural diversity and indigenous rights. Some of the winning work is exhibited at Pakhuis de Zwijger cafe for the month of March, representing a valuable documentation of marginalized culture within an increasingly homogenous cultural paradigm.

A big thank you goes out to the judging panel, consisting of: internationally acclaimed photographer Jimmy Nelson, Aboriginal Australian photographer and former NAIDOC Artist of the Year Wayne Quilliam Photography and founder of Natives Photograph + 2017 winner Josue Rivas. Visit the website for more information.
On February 21, Sinchi organizes a public event on the topic of Framing Indigenous Culture, witha debate with the founder of Natives photograph Josue Rivas and the founder of Black Achievement Month Antoin Deul.
