Mon- Sun 19-25 June – “I Welcome” – photo exhibition on refugee crises

June 19, 2017 - June 25, 2017

Exhibition of powerful photographs of past and present refugee crises will be at Storyhouse in Chester between Monday 19 – Sunday 25 June.

Vietnam, Chechnya, Bosnia, Iraq and Syria all feature in the exhibition as part of Amnesty’s I Welcome campaign.

Taking place during Refugee Week between Monday 19 – Sunday 25 June, the exhibition will explore the experiences of those uprooted by conflict and persecution over 70 years since the Second World War. From 1940s Greece to Syria today, the 30 striking pictures from Magnum photographers show the reasons why people are forced to flee, the challenges they face on their journeys to safety and what happens when they make it.

The exhibition is part of Amnesty’s I Welcome campaign, calling on the UK to share responsibility in responding to the refugee crisis, including by providing safe and legal routes for refugees to find sanctuary here. The campaign also highlights the many acts of welcome and solidarity towards refugees from local communities across the country.
