This Is Who I Am reading @ Stour Space, Hackney Wick

August 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This is a free event
What goes on in our immigration system and inside detention is often kept very hidden and migrant lives are misrepresented. Those with experience are not always in a position to speak out.
This exhibition is a series of photographs created and directed by people who have survived immigration and detention. The work is an expression of individual experiences, focusing on the matters that the individuals most wanted to communicate about their journey. It is an opportunity to hear directly from those who have been affected.

A little background…
**”It’s not good, you are locked. It’s like jail. There’s barbed wire all around the fences.’**

In the UK, the Government detains approximately 30,000 people for immigration purposes per year. Many are detained in conditions that challenge fundamental human rights, just for administrative purposes. It is not a criminal procedure, yet migrants are similarly locked up and denied their freedom.

About SIFH+…
