The Place I Call Home

A unique exhibition, called The Place I Call Home, reaches the Copeland Gallery in Peckham this March as part of a touring schedule that spans ten venues in seven countries.

The exhibition, curated by David Drake, Director of Ffotogallery Wales, features work by 15 photographers and artists from the Arab world and UK exploring the theme of ‘home’ through stories of culture and heritage which challenge stereotypes and shed light on differences and commonalities.
