New Midlanders


Through a series of guided workshops, asylum seekers and refugees have developed self-reflective photo artworks.

The creation of self-reflective photo artworks and testimonials from people fleeing persecution allowed researchers to explore how photography can engage with and support communities. The project highlighted how photography can help bridge cultural divisions, and conveyed critical issues facing refugees in the UK.

This was a collaborative venture with Darryl Georgiou (Art and Design, Coventry University), Tarla Patel (International Student Office, Warwick), Dr Harbinder Sandhu (Warwick Medical School) and colleagues at Coventry Peace House. To find out more, please contact Dr Harbinder Sandhu.
