We have been bringing award-winning photography and film to campuses across Ireland every autumn. This is a festival run by students, for students, and a great way to learn more about the burning issues shaping the world around us.

Every year, the 8x8 Festival includes a stunning outdoor photography exhibition developed by students that travels to campuses around Ireland highlighting global justice issues.

8x8 Resources

Here at STAND, we work to educate and engage students on global justice issues by providing you with the tools to understand these issues in more detail. We’ve put together a list of resources used to develop this year’s photo exhibition ‘Together’ in order to allow you to dig deeper into the prejudice and discrimination faced by many groups across the globe.
