Week 2 of our artivism campaign Imagining Sanctuary kicks off today with images of Lewisham market by talented young photographer Seham Mustafa.
“My name is Seham Mustafa and I am from Syria and I now live in Lewisham. I am in year 9 and I love photography.
Lewisham has diversity, safety and almost all different nationalities and religions, and it is a quiet and beautiful place in relation to its geographical location.”
In collaboration with 6 talented creatives with lived experience migration, campaigning organisation London Must Act and design studio Shelby X Studios, we’re inviting people all over the UK to take action to demand urgent resettlement of refugees, a fair immigration policy and end to the hostile environment.
For 5 weeks leading into Refugee Week in June, we will present one artist’s work alongside an action that everyone can participate in. We have asked each to respond to the theme of ‘Imagining Sanctuary’.
- Take a photo that captures something that means sanctuary to you
- Share it on your preferred social media channels using the hashtags #sanctuary #LondonMustAct #RefugeesWelcome
