About the project

A time to talk is the final project from the bachelor students of photojournalism at Oslo University College in a collaboration with Pathshala South Asian Media Institute and Myanmar Deitta. Through two months of fieldwork with a base camp in Yangon, Myanmar, students from Norway, Bangladesh and Myanmar have brought their unique stories back home, all including text, video and still images.

Myanmar has experienced a rapid development after the change from military ruled government to democracy in 2011. Our projects reflect a country in motion regarding the people’s opinions on politics, religion, media and art. The stories are produced in all corners of Myanmar, and also in China, Malaysia and Thailand. All projects are surrounded with the common theme of human rights. The work will be presented on this page, in a printed book and an exhibition. The project is (among others) funded by the Norwegian department of foreign affairs. As a business, the project is coordinated through an education program by Junior Achievement – Young Enterprise.

The exhibition will have its grand gallery opening at Cafeteatret on Thursday the 5th of June. The gallery is located in Hollendergata 8, in the Grønland area of Oslo. Doors open at 6PM with a show of speeches, videos and entertainment starting at 7PM.

To get there by public transport, bus 37 arrives right outside the door on the stop named “Politihuset”. The tram stops close by too, at “Munkegata”. If you’re arriving by subway, it’s just a short, two minute walk from gallery. Please check the map below for details.

Announce your visit on Facebook. Looking forward to see you there!
