Through our eyes Exhibition - Lisboa - 20 a 26 de Novembro
Since August 2019 there has been an enormous raise of migrants and refugees arrivals on Greek Islands (mainly Lesvos, Chios and Samos), with the highest numbers since summer 2015.
Consequently, living conditions in the camps are getting worse everyday with possible increasing in the tensions among the population.
In this alarming context, it’s the right time to create as many spaces and moments as possible to bring the people together, discuss and reflect around the shameful injustice that our European society is willing to accept in its borderland.
The photography project Through Our Eyes shows the daily lives of asylum seekers living in the ‘hotspot’ camp on Samos Island, Greece, through their own eyes. Behind the camera, instead of reporters or journalists, we find teenage boys and girls who have been living in this camp for months.
The young photographers are students at the Mazi youth center, the only educational option for them on the island, run by the NGO Still I Rise. Founded in June 2018 by Nicolò Govoni, Giulia Cicoli and Sarah Ruzek, Mazì provides informal education and psychosocial support for children aged 12 to 17 living in the camp.
The photos show us the daily reality and the emotional struggles of children trapped at the edge of Europe, at the mercy of geopolitical wranglings that take no account of their need to survive, to learn, to flourish and grow.
We believe this is the most concrete and tangible way of bringing attention to an impossible and inhumane situation that needs to change, now.
The 20th of November is the International Children’s Day and the exhibition will be inaugurated simultaneously in several cities in the world.
During the week of the exhibition, Galeria Monumental will host talks, performances and gatherings around this topic. We will be raising funds to support Still I Rise and their education program for children.
A detailed program will soon be released, stay tuned!
Thanks to Galeria Monumental for their support in the organisation of this exhibition.
See you there!
