A Rightful Place
June 1 to July 23
A Rightful Place was created as an effort to stimulate connection with and acceptance of newcomers amongst local communities. The exhibition tells the stories of the lives and migration experiences faced by newcomers through portraits and personal narratives.
"I hope this project may play a role in helping people see newcomers as individuals, with happy and tragic stories, and unique reasons for coming to live with us. I hope the portraits make people feel curious." - Michael Bell, project photographer
