Details

How might photography ethically and imaginatively represent refugee stories?

How do displaced artists work between cultures and across borders?

Can photographs help change the traditional media narratives around forced migration?

Join Rich Wiles and artists Taysir Batniji, Ala Buisir, Gohar Dashti and Andrew Jackson, as well as writer Anan Tello and Raghad Mardini, founding director of Litehouse Gallery, for an international symposium inspired by In Which Language Do We Dream?
The event is chaired by Anne McNeill, Director of Impressions Gallery and curator of the exhibition, and will close with a screening of a short film by Ruba and Rami al-Hindawi in collaboration with Rich Wiles.

We are familiar with the news headlines and the photographic images of the so-called ‘refugee crisis’. But what happens after displacement to those who are resettled and try to rebuild their lives?

In Which Language Do We Dream? presents an intimate perspective on the lives of displaced people: one in which displaced people themselves tell their own stories.
The exhibition is a co-created project with curator Anne McNeill guiding the photographic selection through collaboration and discussion with Rich Wiles and the al-Hindawi family.

This symposium is supported by Counterpoints Arts as part of Platforma 6.

The symposium will take a hybrid online/in-person format with a limited number of in-person tickets available. Book early to secure your place.
