Photography Open Exhibition entitled MIGRANTS: What does Migration mean to you?

About

Keeping the momentum, Zia presents the open submissions to the exhibition MIGRANTS to emerging photographers all over the globe.

The exhibition was born after the 1946 George Orwell’s column As I Please, wrote for the newspaper Tribune. 70 years after, we understand that we fall in the same Migration debate, seeing that people are not well informed by the media. “People are not told with sufficient clarity what is happening, and why, and what may be expected to happen in the near future. As a result, every calamity, great or small, takes the mass of the public by surprise, and the Government incurs unpopularity by doing things which any government, of whatever colour, would have to do in the same circumstances.

Orwell in his column As I Please, emphasised that disinformation triggers confused opinions “The fact is that there is strong popular feeling in this country against foreign immigration. It arises from simple xenophobia, partly from fear of undercutting in wages, but above all from the out-of-date notion that Britain is overpopulated and that more population means more unemployment”

MIGRANTS exhibition is an open exhibition for photographers to submit their work. It asks the question; What does Migration mean to you? With this unrestricted exhibition we would like to voice all points of view on Migration in society.

MIGRANTS is an exhibition of art which enables photographers and students, to showcase their artwork. MIGRANTS's aim is to reach and engage an extensive and diverse community in the course of daily life through "Identity- Photography- Voice". MIGRANTS is expanding access to public of the innovative creative arts projects and initiatives that exist within London.

The idea is to select photographers to participate in an upcoming group exhibition that will take place in in London. We have encouraged all photographers to use this as their theme in their submitting artwork although the theme was not strict.
