Centrala is proud to announce its exciting collaboration with Rosetta Art and Culture Within Newham to launch the Eastern European Photography Club, an initiative aimed at promoting cultural exchange, community engagement, and creativity. This partnership reflects our shared commitment to celebrating the diverse cultural heritage of Central and Eastern Europe through the lens of photography. By combining the artistic expertise of Rosetta Arts with Centrala’s dedication to fostering cultural connections, we aim that the Eastern European Photography Club will become a hub where individuals from various backgrounds can come together, share their stories of migration, and express the process of establishing a new home in away from one’s place of origin using the medium of photography
