International Centre for Litvak Photography cover
Mission The International Centre for Litvak Photography is an independent organisation that uses photography as the catalyst for a wide range of original and innovative projects aimed at creating a better understanding of Lithuania’s once diverse Litvak history and culture. Its main activities include educational programmes and events, exhibitions, research and the creation of a publicly accessible digital archive of Litvak and Litvak-related photography representing a broad range of photographic genres spanning the history of photography in Lithuania from the middle of the nineteenth century to the present day. Primarily but not exclusively an empowering and participatory organisation, the International Centre for Litvak Photography values Litvak history and culture as inclusive subjects open to everyone regardless of age, race, religion, ability or sexual orientation and is committed to sharing — and consequently preserving — Lithuania’s rich Litvak cultural heritage.
Beschreibung The International Centre for Litvak Photography was registered as an NGO in Lithuania on May 25, 2015. Two months, one international workshop and a three-week fact-finding trip to Poland, Germany and the UK later and we’re finally ready to officially launch. Founded as a creative antidote to the ineffectiveness of most Lithuanian institutions who say many things about memory but who do little to preserve it, we use photography as the catalyst for a wide range of educational and cultural events aimed at putting Lithuanian Jewish history back in the picture and creating a better understanding of Lithuania’s diverse Litvak cultural heritage. Like us, Share us, ask us to come and work with you, and, most importantly for the short-term future, donate some spare money so we can get on and do the things we need to do. The International Centre for Litvak Photography is an apolitical and secular organisation that values Litvak history and culture as inclusive subjects open to everyone regardless of age, race, religion, ability or sexual orientation.
