Who this event is for

  • Public


Glass Tank, Abercrombie Building, Headington Campus


An interactive workshop exploring the Sea of Humanity photographic element of our HOME exhibition, looking at themes of hope & truth about the migration crisis from volunteers & activists on the frontline. The group travelled by road as a group of friends, humans, to camps in Calais and Lesvos between April 2015 and March 2016. In this exhibition they share their reflection, analysis and action. We can read of the barbarities that are taking place, they offered instead a still silent space to feel life-affirming tenderness and a kind of defiance that exists in these places of pain. A space to feel the photos and absorb the words with a pace slower than news.
