In Search of Freedom 2018


  • IN SEARCH OF FREEDOM: 1968–2018 is a joint project led by Beletrina that brings together the National Museum of Contemporary History in Ljubljana, The History Meeting House in Warsaw, and the EUROM in Barcelona with the aim to re-examine the message of the 1968 student protests and to promote the importance of a civil society in shaping democracy

One of the project’s main activities is an INTERNATIONAL INSTAGRAM PHOTO CONTEST. Conceived with the aim to build an archive of positive images of freedom fighting and freedom fighters from contemporary society, the contest is open to everyone, welcoming particularly students. It aims to remind that the search for freedom is not over yet: in a world of increasing social injustices, there is still a need for inspiring freedom fighters.

Under the hashtag #InSearchOfFreedom2018, the contest calls Instagramers to post images reflecting their own individual creative perceptions, interpretations, and visions of positive examples of the search for freedom. Focus can be made on events, stories, and personalities from immediate reality or the media.

Submissions will be considered until May 30, 2018. The best photos as selected by the jury will be displayed in an INTERNATIONAL TRAVELLING EXHIBITION held from June to December 2018 in Ljubljana (National Museum of Contemporary History), Warsaw (History Meeting House) and Barcelona (University of Barcelona).
