Sea of Change. Curated by Antigoni Pasidi

“Sea of Change brings together narratives and oral history accounts from people whose travel across the sea for survival has been met and supported by another body, another fighter for freedom – those who worked or volunteered to save them. Sea of Change bring these voices into a space – reactivated and re-embodied – and to re-enact these tales of humanity and compassion.

The project is realised in collaboration with a number of socially engaged, humanitarian, community and co-operative organisations, as well as individuals who have worked to change other people‚Äôs lives.”
