At this photo exhibition De geschiedenis op je schouders: een verhaal over teloorgang en veerkracht in Moengo [History on your shoulders: a story about demise and resilience in Moengo] the results of the six-week workshop ‘Double Heritage’ will be shown. The workshop and exposition were given by artist Roosje Verschoor.

Ten young people have documented their own identity – and that of Moengo – on camera. The images are show things of the present as well as from the past. The photographs show the many layers of life in Moengo.

There will be photographs of the youngsters both inside and outside the museum in Moengo. In addition, a certificate is handed over to all young people to follow the workshops, a festive moment!

Made possible thanks to the Kibii Foundation and Dutch culture center for international cooperation Shared Cultural Heritage.
