The Invisibles' Journey
In collaboration with Secours Catholique
19 - 28 October
9.30am - 5.30pm Saturdays
9.00am - 6.00pm Sunday - Friday
This exhibition presents paintings, drawings and prints created by migrants who took part in arts workshops organised and facilitated by the charity Secours Catholique at its day-centre in Calais (The Jungle).
Exhibiting the artwork made by the exiled persons passing though Calais (600 people in December 2017) aims to highlight the reality of their personal stories and their lives in transit. Whilst the mobility of these individuals’ remains constrained, their works
can circulate without limits.
