8 April 6-9pm
MIGRANTS: Colombians in London Photography exhibition is a participatory and collaborative project that asks the question: What does home mean to you?
The exhibition opens on Saturday 8th of April at 6.00 pm and finishes at 9.00 pm
The aim of MIGRANTS: Colombians in London is to talk about migration at this moment in time, after the results of the Colombian Referendum for the PEACE, back on Sunday 2nd of October 2016. The results were very divisive; No Vote- took the total of 50.21 % of the votes and Yes Vote- took the total of 49.78% of the votes.
It is important to share a platform where we can hear and share the voices of Colombian migrants in an open and creative way.
