EverydayNile

#EverydayNile brings together photographers, journalists and researchers from different Nile basin countries to challenge stereotypes like the ‘water war’ that distort our understanding of the Nile river. This exhibition is part of the film and water festival Let's Talk About Water.

By linking photos, storytelling and scientific research we wish to foreground alternative narratives that surprise, delight, inform and facilitate transboundary connections.

Three photographers from Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia will present their gaze on the river and will discuss with journalists and researchers the role of images in shaping media narratives. #EverydayNile is an initiative by the project Open Water Diplomacy – Media, Science and transboundary cooperation in the Nile basin funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Global Partnership for Water and Development, and is implemented by IHE Delft, Africa Water Journalists, Nile Basin Capacity Building Network, SciDev.net and University of Wits (Johannesburg).
