Artist Talk with Rich Wiles — Impressions Gallery

Join us to hear socially-engaged photographer Rich Wiles share more about In Which Language Do We Dream? and the process of collaborative working. This hybrid event will take place in the gallery and will be live streamed online.

In the UK, we are familiar with the news headlines and the photographic images of the so-called ‘refugee crisis’. But what happens after displacement to those who are resettled and try to rebuild their lives? What about personal stories, and the relationships that form between new friends and new neighbours?

In Which Language Do We Dream? offers fresh insights into these issues, through the photographic perspectives of a Syrian family with first-hand experience. This multi-stranded exhibition presents an intimate perspective on the lives of displaced people: one in which displaced people themselves tell their own stories.

Rich will talk through the process of making the project, and answer questions about the work as part of a live Q&A.

Free event, donations welcome.
Booking essential via Eventbrite.

This hybrid event will take place in the gallery and will be live streamed online. There are a limited number of in-person tickets available – please select this option when registering if you would like to attend the live talk at the gallery.

All appropriate precautions and COVID safety procedures will be followed.
