15 February – 6 March
Beyond the rhetoric on refugees and asylum seekers are real people, each with a unique and often tragic story to tell. Faces of Asylum is a photographic exhibition which tells real life stories of people who have left their homes, friends, family and everything they know to escape violence, persecution or worse.
This show is presented by Bega Valley Sanctuary and Amnesty International who have come together to present an exhibition focusing on two communities, the Karen from eastern Burma and the Hazara from Afghanistan, who have both witnessed war and destruction in their homelands. The exhibition aims to raise awareness in the community regarding refugee issues worldwide.
