Event description

Description

You are invited to join us at our exhibition opening at Z-arts on Monday 19 June from 17:00 onwards for a special evening to launch the exhibition and the 'Our City, Our Home' Refugee Week programme.

The launch will feature special guest speakers and also an exhibition tour with one of our curators. Refreshments will be provided. Please sign up to attend.

What does it mean to be “home”?

With an interactive and homely layout, the exhibition Home Is... explores the idea of what it means to be home, whether it is a place, an object, a memory, or a person.

It will discuss what it means to be a refugee within the UK, highlighting media representations interspersed with personal narratives of those forced to leave their homes.

The exhibition includes Against All Odds, an interactive video game produced by the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency which aims to portray some of the experiences of refugees. There will also be a variety of short films showing including Al Hurriya Freedom Liberté; an animated short film about refugees living in Calais and a film produced by Societal Multilingualism students from the University of Manchester.

The exhibition runs until 12:00 on Friday 23 June so there are plenty of opportunities to pop in. Daily opening times are detailed below.

Monday 19 June 12:00 – 21:00
Tuesday 20, Wednesday 21, Thursday 22 June 09:00 – 21:00
