Thirty Six pounds, Ninety Five pence: Artworks by contemporary migrant artists - Online exhibition Contrary to common belief, asylum seekers are not allowed to work and receive just £36.95 a week in vouchers to live on. This group of artists has suffered the untold horrors of political violence and war, having lost family and friends, their cultures, languages, homes and identities. They now face the challenges of building a new life in an often hostile environment. The paintings in this exhibition reflect the resilience and sensitivity of the migrant’s story: one of loss and hope.
