Since he participated in the first Global Environments Summer Academy in 2011, Inanc Tekguc has been part of the Global Environments Network (GEN) through his role as Global Diversity Foundation (GDF) Media Consultant. Additionally, as a GEN Resource Person, Inanc offers a fun video communications workshop along with other returning alumni at GEN events.
Inanc complements his photography and videography with an MA in visual anthropology from the University of Kent (UK). His interest in community-based conservation and biocultural diversity has taken him to a handful of places around the world to carry out independent research, to do volunteer work or to contribute to GDF projects. His experiences include making short films, visual geo-tagging and community mapping, community training in the use of visual tools, and documenting multidisciplinary research training and workshops.
Inanc and Eda Elif Tibet (GESA 2014) jointly create documentary films under the name of Karma Motion. When possible, Inanc likes to travel for personal projects and use his camera to explore faces, places, and spaces. He is always eager to join forces with other GEN members on collaborative projects.
I love being part of what GDF adds to the world, making it a better place bit by bit. Our events are where I charge my personal ‘batteries’ taking energy from highly motivated brilliant participants. I hope that my camera can humbly contribute spread the message of these changemakers who have very important things to say but might not have a camera in their hands.
