Project Description

I Welcome Exhibition
¡Radical Buttons! Workshop

As part of the inaugural Here We Are festival we hosted a photography exhibition co-produced by Amnesty International & Magnum Photos, I Welcome. During the festival we also organised a pin badge making workshop with the local branch of Amnesty International, ¡Radical Buttons!

I Welcome explored the experiences of those uprooted by conflict and persecution over 70 years since the Second World War. From 1940s Greece to Syria today, the 30 striking pictures from Magnum photographers show the reasons why people are forced to flee, the challenges they face on their journeys to safety and what happens when they make it.

In the ¡Radical Buttons! workshop, particpants made their own campaigning pin badges.
