Of Soul and Joy Photo Project: A social art engagement that aims to empower South African youth through photography
Of Soul and Joy’s Photo Fest is a youth photography festival which takes place on the 14th of September at Buhlebuzile Secondary in Thokoza.
The Photo Fest presents a selection of photographic narratives developed by young photographers from Thokoza who have been part of the Of Soul and Joy photo project since its inception in 2012. This year’s festival programme will also include talks and panel discussions with renowned and emerging photographers and creatives. Photographic works under the theme “Khumalo Street, post 1994” will also form part of the exhibition.
