Romi Kaplan
International Development and Media
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Johannesburg
THNK connection: THNKer , AMS Class 03

I was referred to THNK by Itai Talmi.



With a fascination for the diversity of human culture, I have produced and directed a number of features for TV and film festivals on the issues of migration and co-existence.  On the 60th anniversary of the UN Genocide Convention I convened an international conference with the Aegis Trust, as a way to highlight the plight of Darfuri refugees in Israel. I've worked for a number of years for a Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR Network) NGO based in Israel, and am currently the Director of a digital story telling archive at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. In my free time I like to make glass art and ride horses.
