Liverpool Guild Of Students
8th-16th March 2010
“Sola Arts are delivering an exhibition in the community bringing
together refugees, asylum seekers and artists. The exhibition is called
'NEVER AGAIN Part 2: A Genocide Experience'.”
This is what I got sent in an email. If you really go there and see all
the pictures, installations and other artwork, it is overwhelming. You
meet the people, the artists are asylum seekers/refugees, you talk to
them and they explain. Most of them shyly, but you can still see they
are proud of their work. People from Eritrea, Afghanistan, Russia, Tibet
and England – just to name a few, came together and created.
There was spontaneous poetry reading (including original material) and
at the end of the opening evening everyone was asked to light a candle
to think of all the victims of genocide all over the world.
Don’t miss these powerful pieces of art. They are only on display
for a short while, until the 16th of March. A brilliant exhibition.
