‘Home’ can mean anything to any number of people, which is evident in a new exhibition set up by the UK for UNHCR to mark Refugee Week.
What ‘home’ means to refugees explored in new exhibition
An online photography exhibition has been launched to explore the meaning of “home” as part of Refugee Week.
The digital gallery, set up by UK for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency’s national charity partner for the UK, will shine a light on what home means for people who have been forced to flee from war.
The Gallery of the (New) Home exhibition will run as part of this year’s Refugee Week from June 20-26, but will be open for submissions throughout summer.
Photographs have already been submitted by a variety of people, including refugees, with images ranging from family members, to a beloved childhood toy or photographs of parents’ cooking.
