    ​International Discussion Series: Journalism and Foreign Aid: What Can We Learn From Reporting on Failure?

    Since 2013, photojournalist Peter DiCampo has been documenting failed, unfinished, and broken foreign aid projects in various parts of Africa, photographing their remains and listening to the community perspective of what went wrong. This year, the project evolved into a participatory journalism initiative in Kenya, where people were able to call or text a mobile phone survey and report on aid in their own communities. In this talk, DiCampo will share insights and photographs from his reporting in Ghana, Malawi, and Kenya. All are welcome!
