Square Mile at Les Rencontres d’Arles Photo Festival
Join us on Tuesday, July 2, at 15:00 CEST for a presentation of Square Mile, an initiative by VII Community in partnership with PhotoWings that showcases the significance of local stories in a global context.

This event includes a screening of VII Community members’ work and a discussion with the project’s curators, Ron Haviv (The VII Foundation Director), Suzie Katz (PhotoWings Founder and President), along with featured photographers Mihaela Aroyo and Mahdi Barchian. The event will be moderated by Nika Perne, VII Community Manager, and the project curator.

Square Mile is an initiative that presents diverse photographic explorations by members of VII Community. It is a geographic framework, signifying a local focus on spaces where personal, local, and global influences intersect. The projects explore how themes such as climate change, identity, history, legacy, migration, gender, and environment appear within a local perspective.
