A walking exhibition to mark World Refugee Week

When: 15 - 21st June, World Refugee Week
Where: Brother Hubbard, The Joy of Chá, The Fumbally Café, Berlin-D2 and The Beer House

The IRC have organised a walking photography exhibition which explores the Direct Provision system in Ireland. The collection, which includes images from Zoë O’Reilly, Rory O’Neill and the Asylum Archive, offers a glimpse into the reality of life in the Direct Provision system for those waiting to be granted protection. The aim is to raise awareness about the human cost of the current system, in particular the harmful impact it is having on the children who are growing up within it. The images represent different aspects of life inside these reception centres and are accompanied by testimonies from people living in this inhumane system. This exhibition would not have been possible without the businesses who agreed to display a photograph for World Refugee Week.

We would like to thank Brother Hubbard, The Joy of Chá, The Fumbally Café, Berlin-D2 and The Beer House for their support of this awareness raising project.

This exhibition will run for the duration of World Refugee Week, Sunday 15th – 22nd of June.

We have created an interactive Geo Map of the exhibition which is available here: http://batchgeo.com/map/WorldRefugeeWeekWalkingExhbition
