They cannot take the sky

A new exhibition at the Rachinger Gallery in Geelong aims to bring to light the stories of refugees who have spent time in Australian on- and off-shore immigration detention centres. Through photo portraits and video installations we get a rare insight into the lived experiences of asylum seekers and refugees. The exhibition is on until January 31st at Rachinger Gallery, Eastern Hub, Geelong. More details at https://easternhub.org.au/rachinger-gallery/

The exhibition is brought to Geelong by Behind the Wire (behindthewire.org.au) in partnership with Road to Refuge (roadtorefuge.com).
