The curator asked for the work people made in The Calais Jungle to be a part of the exhibition.

I was pleased ot have kept my word with the folks in Calais I said I would show their work to people once I got home.

2016 SalShom5Thanks to those who left some really meaningful comments.

transcribed from above “Excellent exhibition, powerful images, I especially ‘enjoyed’reading the letters from jewish refugees and looking through the box supplied by Xeena – to hold in my hand the images drawn by refugees is very powerful.”
