"Moving Objects: Stories of Displacement"

18 Feb-1 Oct 2019 (closed 17-22 Apr 2019), 09.00-19.00 daily, The Octagon, University College London

"Discover the stories of people, animals and objects in exile, as told by refugees and researchers in London and the Middle East. 

Today, around 68.5 million refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced people are trapped in a state of temporary permanence across the world.

This free exhibition draws together poems, photographs and archival materials selected by people with experience of being displaced from their homes. Working closely with UCL researchers, people in London, Lebanon and Jordan chose objects that challenge public perceptions of what it means to be a refugee."


Further info online, plus details of a free symposium and launch event: the Symposium will take place in the IAS Common Ground, 12.00 - 17.00 on 14 March. The Launch will take place in the UCL Pearson Building 18.00 - 20.00 on 14 March.
