Programme/Project objectives

We Are Here is a multi-platform cultural project that enables socially and economically marginalised citizens and communities who have little or no access to creative work and cultural production, to work alongside artists and use visual media; digital photography, drawing, painting, writing, mixed media and digital video to produce intimate and revealing self-portraits of their lives – the realities of their day to day living, the challenges, hopes, fears and aspirations. The communities involved are; young single parents in the UK; refugee and Romany communities in Hungary and Serbia; disadvantaged disabled people in Belgium and migrant youngsters in the Veneto region of Italy. Bringing these communities and artists together around shared issues and practice will help create a new picture of the issues faced by our marginalised communities so that they should not be ignored. We Are Here!
