The Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and UNESCO, in partnership with the European Union presents the photo exhibition, “The Afghanistan we are proud of,” in the occasion of the Brussels Conference on Afghanistan, on the 4th and 5th of October, 2016!
Part of the exhibition will emphasise on the empowerment of women and their roles during the side event, “Empowered Women–Prosperous Afghanistan,” and the rest of the exhibition will highlight the rich yet rarelyknown cultural and natural heritage of Afghanistan during the main event.
The exhibition will be a proof of cooperation between the Afghan Government and UNESCO whom have cooperated to strengthen the legitimacy of the state and to restore a form of social capital. An awareness-raising campaign, “The Afghanistan we are proud of,” was first initiated last year to promote the sense of national identity through Afghanistan’s rich cultural heritage. With the support of the Korean Government and within the framework of this campaign, a nation-wide photo competition brought together the best photos of Afghan heritage in the eyes of photographers, dreamers, creative visionaries, and visual communicators.
