Uprooted exhibition – Kirkby Lonsdale

Event details

address:

St Mary's, Church Street, Kirkby Lonsdale, LA6 2AX, United Kingdom

date:

Join us for a moving photographic exhibition showing 21-27 July 2018, featuring stories of displaced people in Nigeria, Kenya and Iraq.  The Uprooted exhibition is touring the country to raise awareness of the 40 million internally displaced people around the world. Because those displaced inside their own country have not crossed a border, they often lack international recognition and support. The exhibition will give you the chance to hear displaced people tell their own stories. Through a series of powerful images and individual accounts, you'll learn more about the global crisis of displacement, its consequences, and the challenges displaced people face.
