Streatham exhibition documenting refugee women

The South London Liberal Synagogue (1 Prentis Road) is hosting a photography exhibition, Home Sweet Home.

The exhibition showcases photos taken by women asylum seekers documenting their lives in the UK. It's previously been shown in Parliament and Riverside Studios, and has been described as 'incredibly moving' by Marie Claire magazine.

The Home Sweet Home exhibition is a project of Women for Refugee Women, a charity which supports women refugees and asylum seekers, and challenges the injustices of the UK asylum system.

The exhibition will be open as part of the Open Sukkot Service, at 11am, Sat 29th October. The service will include explanation for anyone, Jewish or not, who wants to know how a Jewish service works. Sukkot is a time when Jews build and dwell in temporary sukkot (huts) and the synagogue will have its own beautifully decorated sukkah to visit. Refreshments will be provided.

LocationL 1 Prentis Road, Streatham, SW16 1ZW. More information here.
