About the show
FiLiArt:Refuge is an exhibition that comes at a critical time. Now more than ever, we must stand up for the values of equality, diversity and solidarity across social divides. At FiLia, we believe that art is a powerful way to bring people together, speaking a shared universal language.
FiLiArt:Refuge explores the boundaries of safety and vulnerability in women’s lives, from the hopes and dreams of Syrian refugee girls, to the devastating impacts of abuse, to the transformative space of sisterhood. Experience vibrant, exciting work from more than 30 women artists, in all types of media, from sculpture and textiles to digital, film and photography.
