Refugee Photography Exhibit Past

Friday, Nov 4, 2016 ,
7:00 PM
- Berkeley, CA, United States

Free Event

Please join us for a multimedia event seeking to humanize and shed light on the Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans, and multiple other nationalities being directly affected by the refugee crisis. Given the current rhetoric surrounding refugees, it is important that we learn about the untold and often neglected stories.

The main exhibit will display the works of two talented photographers, Abdulazez Dukhan and Hassan Alhomse, who have been stranded in refugee camps in Northern Greece. Hassan and Abdulazez lived in the Eko camp near the Greece/FYROM border from March to May of 2016. Since then they have been relocated to military camps as they await the highly bureaucratic registration process. Through their photography, Hassan and Abdulazez capture the harsh realities of living in the camps juxtaposed with the humanity and resilience of those who live there. They are able to not only share the stories, but also successfully amplify the voices of those who are often silenced.

The evening will also feature:

~Mini-documentary, "No Place Like Hope" by Mohammad JD, an emergency medical care provider, humanitarian, author and film maker who spent three months volunteering in Greece.

~Musical performance from Yara Mubarak.

This event is free, however there is a GoFundMe for anyone wishing to give donations. Refreshments will also be provided.

Sponsors: ARRC, Amnesty International at Berkeley, SOS, Save a Refugee, Afghan Student Association
