The UK is the only country in Europe that doesn’t have a time limit on detention.
In the UK, the Government detains approximately 30,000 people for immigration purposes per year.
In 2017, 28,244 people left detention. 44% were removed from the UK, which means that 56% of those detained were released back into the community, their detention having served no purpose.
What goes on in our immigration system and inside detention is often kept very hidden and those with experience are not always able to speak out.
Those involved all had very different approaches to the work they made and responses to their individual experience of immigration and detention. This exhibition is a chance to hear directly those who have been impacted.
