Gold Photography

Photography plays an integral part in the GOLD creative development process. From the beginning of this project, young people have participated in photography workshops and were given access to cameras and equipment to develop these skills. Most had no prior experience in photography.

Gold Films

In most instances the films are created by farmers and  young people participating in GOLD, working in collaboration with a filmmaker.
