The ReCrearte program, a GFDD/Funglode initiative, will showcase clothing, accessories, and crafts promoting sustainable fashion and recycling in the country. This is an excellent opportunity to show how not all that is thrown away is garbage – it can be reimagined and created into something inspirational and beautiful. The exhibition taking place during DREFF is open to the public for the whole period of the festival.

For years NYFA has been organizing and leading travel expeditions for both the School’s Photography and Documentary Film Departments. The work chosen for this exhibition at DREFF 2016 is from NYFA students that have traveled to the Dominican Republic in the past two years. The simple assignment to the students was to tell visual stories about their experience in the DR. Some of the work is classic landscape, portraying the environment in its natural beauty; other work takes a hard look at how the environment is treated, or mistreated, by its residents. What they presented is evocative, passionate, compelling, and visually interesting, whether it was through portraits, landscapes, social commentary, or images of food.

Place: Funglode
Date: 13 – 18 September
Time: 24/7
