Liverpool Exhibition Raises Awareness of Refugees Plight
Any Frontier: Any Hemisphere
At the launch of the thought-provoking art exhibition Any Frontier: Any Hemisphere at Liverpool Central Library, Durani Rapozo gave a moving account of his experiences both being a refugee and and helping others in Liverpool in his role as a complex-needs social worker.
The well-attended launch, opened by the Rev Phil Waldron of Ullet Road Unitarian Church, showcased a range of art, sculpture and poetry by over twenty artists from Merseyside, and also attracted entries from Manchester and Leeds artists.
Durani, who is based at Asylum Link Merseyside said, “It is wonderful that artists have worked together to create this exhibition, which not only raises awareness of refugee issues, but is also raising funds for the charity MerseyAid, who provide practical support.”
Clare Flinn, who helped organise the exhibition said, “Feedback from the public has been positive and all the artists involved are pleased to be able to help raise awareness of the real issues affecting people who have lost so much.”
The exhibition continues until 21st June at Liverpool Central Library. (Mon-Fri, 9am -8pm. Sat, 9am-5pm. Sat. Sun, 10am-5pm.)
