KRAN Photography Project 2016

Gulbenkian have an ongoing partnership with Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN). As part of this, in Summer 2016, Gulbenkian delivered a photography project for young refugees, entitled ‘My England’, as part of the ‘Only in England’ exhibition at The Beaney.

Young people worked with the photographer, Jason Pay to capture images of Canterbury, as well as building confidence, developing language skills, and experiencing different encounters with the local community.

The work was exhibited in the Front Room of The Beaney, and some images were featured inside a cardboard house created by Animated Arts for their installation ‘Home Town’.

This then travelled to Gulbenkian in August and was exhibited at bOing! International Family Festival.
