Celebrating International Women's Day with Friends from Afghanistan (ext event)

Description: Afghanistan:

hidden voices from a forgotten war

an exhibition March 2nd - 31*

The story of Afghanistan has become a hidden tragedy. While the people living there super on a daily basis from almost unimaginable adversity -the cuelties of incessant conflict, extreme poverty, massive levels of displacement - we turn away, largely unaware of the consequences of our foreign policy in that heart-breaking place. This exhibition seeks to bring the light back on to the realities of existence where every day is fraught with peril. The unique insider perspective offered in this photo exhibition is a snapshot' of howe things are in Afghanistan, nearly two decades on from the initial Invasion in 2001, with glimpses of the past, as well as the path ahead
