Rebecca has worked throughout Southeast Asia with the Thai Children’s Trust, Child Rescue Nepal and over twenty other NGOs who work together to improve the lives of women and children. She will present images from her 2018 visit to Balukhali Camp, Cox’s Bazar, together with stories from survivor refugees that paint a stark, sobering account of their traumatic journey from Rakhine state, Myanmar to Bangladesh.
Yasmin Merali is Professor of Systems Thinking and Director of the Centre for Systems Studies at the University of Hull. She began her life in the UK in a refugee camp in 1972, as a consequence of Idi Amin’s mass expulsion of British Asians from Uganda. She became acquainted with Rebecca Robyn’s work in 2015 when Rebecca was capturing images for The Changing Face of Hull exhibition.
Free admission – all welcome.
