The ACT NOW Campaign of the National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka (NCEASL) has organised a photography exhibition titled ‘Uncover’ to create a discourse around the struggles of voiceless people.

Initiated in 2018, ACT NOW aims to equip youth with knowledge of their democratic rights and duties, encouraging constructive socio-political engagement.

The exhibition will be held from 4 to 8 July at the Harold Peiris Gallery, Lionel Wendt Art Centre, Colombo 7, from 10.00 a.m. to 7.30 p.m.

The exhibition will highlight key issues such as violations of freedom of religion or belief, land grabbing, enforced disappearances, militarisation and the challenges faced by the Malaiyaha Tamil community.

On 4 July, the inaugural day of the exhibition, a panel discussion will be held on the theme ‘The Pursuit of Justice: Dream or Reality?’ featuring Thyagi Ruwanpathirana, South Asia Regional Researcher at Amnesty International; Anushani Alagarajah, Director of Adayaalam Centre for Policy Research; Gowthaman Balachandran, Attorney at Law and Sampath Samarakoon, Senior Researcher and editor of Vikalpa at the Centre for Policy Alternatives.

On 5 July, the exhibition will screen the documentary ‘Thaainilam’ by Someetharan.

The exhibition will conclude on 8 July with a discussion on the theme ‘Justice for Malaiyaha Tamils: A Story of Use and Misuse’.
