Exhibition on refugees in the Library – 2nd to 29th December
Throughout December we will be hosting an exhibition in the Library with a display of 30 evocative panels entitled I Welcome. There are 30 panels and they represent the experience of millions of refugees, people of all ages, faiths and walks of life. The exhibition was first shown on the South Bank a year ago and attracted considerable media attention. Refugees get a bad press in the UK and there is considerable hostility to them coming here. Some of this hostility is whipped up by the media.
It will be on display upstairs (a lift is available) and is free. All the photographs are by Magnum photographers.
The Library is open:
Monday: 10 – 7pm
Tuesday/Friday: 9 – 7pm
Wednesday/Thursday/Saturday: 9 – 5pm
The exhibition is FREE
