On the edge of Bishkek

In the months of April and June, 2021, Mingoiim Nishonova together with NGA students organized an ecological project in the Bishkek city dump. The goal of this project was to highlight ecological issues in the Bishkek city dump through short stories and photography art directed to all Bishkek citizens. During the implementation process, the following activities were carried out: data collection at the city dump with volunteers, data analysis, and creating stories.

As a result, 11 short stories were created which challenged ecological and social issues of the society, and 3 online exhibitions were held via Zoom.

“On the edge of Bishkek” project was supported by the AUCA Presidential Research and Education Fund (PREF) 2020-2021 funding.
