Cork Foundation joins forces with Oxfam Ireland to highlight refugee crisis
Photo exhibition in Cork’s Triskel Arts Centre showcases contributions from 23 Irish writers imagining life as a refugee
The Cork Foundation has joined forces with Oxfam Ireland to host a photo exhibition at Cork’s Triskel Arts Centre on Thursday, October 20th to highlight the plight of refugees worldwide.
The Make Them Visible exhibition combines photographs with the written word and is aimed at raising awareness about the situation facing refugees and displaced people from Syria, South Sudan, Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond. 23 Irish authors supported the Oxfam project by responding to a single image from one of the countries with a piece of flash fiction, a poem or a personal reaction, imagining life as the person(s) pictured
Taking place from 6.00 – 9.00pm, the Foundation is offering the people of Cork an exclusive opportunity to view the exhibition and contemplate this global crisis in a fresh way.
