Across the Mediterranean region, photographers will take to the streets to simultaneously document 12 themes in 12 hours resulting in a collection of photos depicting one day in the life of Beirut, Naples, and Tunis. Together, we will document our cities, people, and communities to produce a rich archive through the eyes of large and diverse groups. The photos that are produced over the span of 12 hours will provide a rich resource to learn about each other and to spot our similarities and differences through the creativity and language of photography.Join us!This event is open to all levels – professionals, amateurs, and enthusiasts (18+)PHOTOMARATHON SCHEDULE9:30am: briefing and first 4 themes distributed at USJ Campus de l'innovation et du sport (Mathaf), Francois S.
