Description


Lost rights, found justice? is a photography competition and exhibition aiming to increase public understanding of the rights and situation of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers through creative visual and legal tools. The exhibition will include photographs selected by a panel of experts in photography and on refugee/migrant issues following our public call for submissions. 

The exhibition launch will feature an awards ceremony and a guided commentary with our human rights experts enabling audiences to expand their knowledge of the legal framework in an accessible manner. 

As part of the project, we are also organising a workshop by documentary photographer Kevin McElvaney on his photography project #RefugeeCameras. To book a place for the workshop, please click here

The photography exhibition runs Saturday 18 November – Saturday 25 November. Weekday openings are 9:00 – 19:00 (18:00 on Saturdays). Senate House is closed on Sunday 19 November and Tuesday 21 November from 13:00.


This event is co-organised by the Human Rights Consortium and the Refugee Law Initiative.
