Volunteering, Displacement and Livelihoods exhibition

  • 19 June 2023 - 4 July 2023
  • Open 12-2pm Monday - Friday
  • Martin Hall Exhibition Space

The photographs in the exhibition provide a unique perspective on the ways young refugees use volunteering to build their lives and livelihoods. It challenges existing thinking about who volunteers, why they do it, and the impacts it has. It also shows that the hopeful and positive image of volunteering should not be a smokescreen for the inequalities and exploitation young refugees experience, and how volunteering can sometimes exacerbate these inequalities.

The exhibition will be open Monday-Friday, 12pm-2pm, and opens during Refugee Week (19-25 June), a national festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary.
