Refugee Rights

Developed with students and artist Dee Ambrose, the 2017 Festival Exhibition uses ordinary items and social media to explore the issue of refugee rights and how the everyday freedoms we take for granted are being denied to millions of humans around the world. 

Every year, the STAND Festival brings award-winning photography and film to campuses across Ireland. The festival is run by students, for students, and is a great way to learn more about the burning issues shaping the world around us.  

What does it mean to be free in a world where 65.6 million people have been forced to flee their homes? That’s the question the Festival 2017 asked at campuses across Ireland.
