I4P Public Event: 4th October 2018 12pm

Exhibition & Public Talk:

Growing up in Afghanistan

Mr Guy Smallman

Edge Hill University is home to an exhibition of the work of freelance photographer Mr Guy Smallman. The exhibition will take up residency in Hale Hall for 10 days and involve a display of selected photographs from Mr Smallman’s time in Afghanistan. Visitors are welcome to drop in to view it at any time.  Mr Smallman will then join us at Edge Hill on Thursday 4th October to discuss his work and answer questions.

Guy Smallman is a self taught, London based photojournalist.  He has worked all over the world in many different countries and environments specializing in social issues like human rights and
poverty.

Since 2008 his main focus has been Afghanistan. His work from that country has appeared in many publications including most UK newspapers, FT Weekend magazine, Channel 4 news and the BBC to name but a few. He was also interviewed for John Pilger’s documentary film ‘The War You Don’t See’ after he became the only foreign journalist to reach the scene of the Granai massacre in Taliban controlled Farah province.

During his time in Afghanistan he has built a long term relationship with the internally displaced people living in terrible conditions in camps around Kabul. His exhibition features their children, many of whom were born in the camps.  For more information go to: http://guysmallman.com/

Action for Refugees Research Network

Action for Refugees was formed as a grouping of academics, support staff and students at Edge Hill University who felt a common need to respond to the plight of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK and abroad. The initial spark was created by a presentation given by members of staff in the Faculty of Education on their work as volunteers in the Calais Jungle. This prompted a multi-faceted response that included fund-raising, volunteering, curriculum developments and knowledge sharing and transfer events. Perhaps most importantly, the group engaged on a number of levels with refugees, asylum seekers and organisations working to support them.  We aim to promote a multi-faceted, positive, response to the refugee crisis that results in a greater understanding of and practical support for those involved.
