Library Photography Exhibition

UDHR Tapestry

We are delighted to announce that the Mayor, Councillor Lawrence Williams, and Mayoress of Bournemouth will be opening our exhibition at Bournemouth Library. This will be on Tuesday 3rd April – the first day of the exhibition – at 3.15pm. The exhibition closes on 28th April.

The main focus of the exhibition is the historic plight of refugees and will feature 30 photographs taken by photographers from the Magnum agency over the past 70 years. The photographs document some of the issues surrounding refugees from the mass upheaval and displacement of the post-war years to the present-day crisis in Syria, Afghanistan and South Sudan. It will also tie in with AIUK’s current “Refugees Welcome” campaign.

The exhibition will also include the Tapestry, above, created by Amnesty groups in the South depicting the 30 articles of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights (UNDHR). This was originally created to mark the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta in 1215 and to highlight the continuing importance of the protections afforded by the UNDHR. The Tapestry spent 6 months adjacent to the Magna Carta at Salisbury cathedral. Since then it has travelled to other venues around the south.

As this year also marks the 70th anniversary of the signing of UNDHR, we think this is a great opportunity to display the Tapestry and bring attention to the 30 articles.

Street Collections

Street collections are a very strange experience – you can get to feel totally invisible without taking anything illicit! You only need turn out for an hour or two and its very much a case of the more the merrier.  They do generate valuable income (about £350 in 2014, £280 2015, £227 2016, £161 2017) and exposure.  However, after quite a low turnout and return from the Bournemouth and Christchurch collections in 2017, this year we are just going to focus on Wareham (where traditionally they have been very generous.) If you wish to help please let us know via the contact link rather than just turning up.
