Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
A collection of artwork by Syrian children currently living in a refugee camp in Lebanon.
The exhibition features drawings and paintings by Syrian refugee children aged 12-18 currently living in Al-Abrar refugee camp in Lebanon. Some of the works reflect the trauma that the young people have experienced, while others are more hopeful and optimistic. Alongside each picture, as well as the title and the name of the artist, there will be a photo of the tent they are currently living in, and a brief statement of that child’s dream.
