“You can see me, but I don’t exist” is an exhibition of photography by Alan Gignoux and creative writing by people seeking refuge living in Birmingham, London, and Manchester. The project and exhibition are sponsored by a National Lottery Project Grant awarded by Arts Council England.
Alan Gignoux worked with JRS, The Jesuit Refugee Service, an international Catholic organisation, at work in over 50 countries around the world with a mission to accompany, serve, and advocate for the rights of refugees and forcibly displaced persons. The writing workshop leader was poet Laila Sumpton.
The exhibition was a collaboration between Alan Gignoux and Newham Libraries.
“You can see me, but I don’t exist” will also be exhibited at the Library of Birmingham and Manchester Central Library.
