Speaking on the October event, the curator of the festival says, “ We are redefining the photo space, and taking it from the roots where I come from is deemed most appropriate. Aside from the aesthetic sense of seeing array of pictures across the length and breadth of Bariga, we would be showing our attendants some uniquely crafted designs of Barigans. The Photo festival is not just about the pictures, it is targeted at selling our dear Bariga to the world” Bariga Photo Festival will includes: Photo graffiti on water, Boat ride at the famous lagoon front, photo walk to selected areas, an exhibition, a grand opener and memorable closing.
