Sudanese Photographers Group (SPG) started as a Facebook group with the goal of bringing together Sudanese photographers and providing an online space for them to showcase their work and get feedback from more experienced members. Now the SPG is organizing an intensive four-week photography master class in Khartoum that will lead to an exhibition and a publication. Participants are Sudanese photographers and photographers from the Invisible Borders Project, Nigeria. A previous workshop with photographers from Sudan and Nigeria triggered the idea of Trans-African collaboration on a larger scale. In addition to improving photographic skills the master class also addresses the socio-political discourse and is aimed at enhancing the knowledge on creative ways of using photography as a tool for social intervention and the role photography can play in shaping the country.
