Cairo's Contemporary Image Collective (CIC) is cooperating with World Press Photo to present a series of digital exhibitions and talks by photographers who took part in the "Reporting Change" project.

The project – which ran for two years – includes works by North African photographers and multimedia journalists and was organised by both World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch.

Between 15 October and 15 December, CIC will be hosting a digital exhibition dubbed "Stories of Change" at its downtown Cairo library, featuring work from participants including: Ahmed Hayman (Egypt), Muhannad Lamin (Libya), Mohamed Ali Eddin (Egypt) and Mosa'ab El-Shamy (Egypt).

Each fortnight CIC will also host a talk by each of the photographers.

The "Reporting Change" project resulted in a book as well as an online representation of the photo-documentary projects, which is available in English, Arabic and French.
