Telling our Stories in Seeing Asylum Exhibition

This experiential exhibition of stories is composed by those impacted by the asylum process. This immersive and powerful exhibition is told through the lived experience of those in, affected and supporting individuals. There is opportunity to take part and share your story, as well as to observe and listen to those who relay their experiences against oppression, trauma and struggle. Articulated through words and objects responses will express and encourage us to walk in others’ shoes and empower them to tell their stories.

To book please see the LCI events page for dates and times.
