Bern launch of My Lens My Reality exhibition

On 4 May 2022, the My Lens My Reality exhibition was opened at the headquarters of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in Bern. The opening took place within the context of the yearly spring meeting of the SDC with its institutional partners.

“Women with a disability face additional stigma”, said Patricia Danzi, SDC Director, during her opening remarks, highlighting multiple discrimination. Ms. Danzi recognized that more needs to be done within the SDC and its projects abroad to ensure the full inclusion and participation of persons with disabilities in all aspects of life. “In many countires, disabiltiy is visible. In Switzerland, it is less visible.”

Ms. Mirjam Gasser spoke on behalf of SDDC to officially open the exhibition. She presented some key findings from the accompanying Photovoice study. She recalled that Switzerland and specifically, Swiss development cooperation, still has a a long way to go to ensure the full inclusion of persons with disabilities.

The exhibition will remain displayed at the SDC in Bern until 19 May 2022.
