Η Μάρω Κουρή είναι καθηγήτρια στη σχολή φωτογραφίας Όραμα και για μεγάλο χρονικό διάστημα δίδασκε φωτογραφία εθελοντικά στις γυναίκες τροφίμους στις ελληνικές φυλακές. Τα φωτογραφικά της άρθρα έχουν δημοσιευτεί τόσο σε ελληνικά όσο και σε διεθνή μέσα μαζικής ενημέρωσης και συνεργάζεται με το φωτογραφικό πρακτορείο, Polaris, στις ΗΠΑ. Θα μας μιλήσει σχετικά με το πόσο δύσκολο είναι να ορθοποδήσει μία χώρα έπειτα από κάποιο πόλεμο, τί γίνεται μία μέρα μετά.
