Cardew Space: Silent Voices
September 25, 2017 @ 12:00 am - October 14, 2017 @ 12:00 am
“Silent Voices” is a thought-provoking photo exhibition of daily life in the Palestinian West Bank village of Bil’in as seen through the eyes of the children who live there.
Children from the ages of 8 to 18 took a camera home from school and shot their own pictures of family and village life following photography workshops by Liverpool community photographer Elaine Stapleton. The result is a moving exhibition that gives us an insight into the lives of those often only represented by outside journalists.
In addition to the children’s photographs are photographs taken by Elaine of weekly protests that form a backdrop to the children’s lives.
Bil’in is twinned with Liverpool through the Liverpool Friends of Bil’in group who have a strong bond with the village and who commissioned the project.
