AboutâAfter The Thaw' presents a unique and stimulating insight into the lives of people living in the former Soviet republics of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Russia and Tajikistan. Twenty years after gaining independence from the USSR, many people have benefited from the great transition while millions still live in poverty.
The exhibition offers a stark, moving and contemporary portrayal of some of the remarkable individuals and communities that live in the region today. It reveals a remarkable richness and variety of cultures, and Oxfam is proud to be able to assist in bringing attention to the neglected plight of these inspiring people. Oxfam runs programmes in all of the countries featured and works to help support people and fight poverty throughout the region.
