Kent Refugee Help’s (10th Anniversary) Art Exhibition and AGM

Mixed Art Exhibition and AGM

week

As part of Kent Refugee Helps (10th Anniversary), the charity will be hosting an exciting AGM and Art Exhibition on Saturday 15th July 2017.

The AGM, with a stimulating line up of speakers on 'Young Refugees in Crisis', will be held at St Paul, Church Street, Canterbury CT1 1NH at 11 am -2 pm

The mixed exhibition I Live Here, with a superb line up of artists from Kent, London and Syria, will be held at Conquest House Gallery,17 Palace St, Canterbury CT1 2DZ. The private view will be on Saturday 15th July 2017 at 3-6pm, and the exhibition will be up between then and 29 July.

I Live Here suggests universal themes of belonging, longing, placement and displacement which are of relevance to the migrant experience. We live affected by the places we remember, forget and dream of, where multiple landscapes may signify home. These themes are reflected and explored in the individual responses of the artists exhibiting. The exhibition is a selection of paintings, prints and drawings by Kate Adams, Chris Bird and Henry Cockburn in support of Kent Refugee Help. The exhibition also features audio-visual artworks by emerging Syrian Artists living in Lebanon -- Shahd Kheto- Mohammed Shurbaji- Hassan Akoul -Mahabba Gharzeddine - Mohamed Aljunde -Abdel Rahman Morad -- in a showcase called The Scene From the Bekaa supported by Seenaryo, Dictaphone Group and Women Now.

The proceeds of sales will be donated to Kent Refugee Help and Syrian Children in Lebanon.
