Traveling photo exhibition inspired by our study

Save the date! Spaces of (dis)connection: Migrant essential workers, a traveling exhibition inspired by our study is coming to Birmingham, London, and Scotland! The exhibition is a result of an exciting collaboration with Centrala, an internationally renowned centre for Central and Eastern European art and artists. It features the work of 3 well-established visual artists of Polish origin: Małgorzata Dawidek, Sylwia Kowalczyk and Paulina Korobkiewicz.

The artists will each present original artwork inspired by the stories of our research participants: Polish essential workers in the UK. The exhibition will kick off with an official launch in Birmingham and London (all welcome, do come along!) and will remain publicly available in each city. It will then travel to Scotland. Once it completes its journey, it will be digitised and moved online for all interested viewers.
