What's On

One Day Changes Exhibition
Thursday 13 to Thursday 20 January 2022
Newcastle City Library


One Day Changes is an exhibition by Skimstone Arts Associate Artists and photojournalists Ako Ismail and Shahor Omar from Iraqi Kurdistan with lived refugee experience. Their images show how in one day something so dramatic and life-changing forces people, including children, who were leading normal lives suddenly to become refugees fleeing their homes, and become survivors looking for a safe place.

One Day is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day Events 2022.
