Participants wanted for photographic project to highlight hate crime

No More Hate Project

Call for individuals who would like to part take in a photographic installation to highlight the experiences of people who have experienced hate crime and to create awareness.

The exhibition will be part of the “we R” exhibition held from 21st June to 3rd July 2016 at Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road London E2 7DG.

My name is Brigitte Boldy. I am a photographic artist based in London. My work is primarily issue based, dealing with questions of identity, displacement, loss and human rights.

My Project:

No More – is a photographic installation of individuals who were either victims of hate crime or are concerned and or oppose the increases of homophobic attacks in the UK and the world in general.

I will be working closely with the 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign and will be photographing the events on 17th April in Brixton, 24th April in Brick Lane, 30th April in Admiral Duncan pub.

The photographs will be portraits only.

If you would like to take part please see me at these events or directly by email: brigitte.boldy@gmail.com .

The experiences of the individuals are as important as the their photographs, therefore if anyone who is reluctant to have their photographs taken but willing to share their story, will also be greatly appreciated.

The photographs will be only used with your consent for the installation at the “we R” exhibition and publicity of the show.

If the exhibition moves to other venues then further consent will be sought from you.

    Hi there I’m glad to see you are standing up for victims of hate crime .I’ve been a victim of hate crime due to my hiv status .i am one of the longest survivors living with HIV in the UK DIAGNOSED in 1981. Good luck with your project.

      Thanks John – yes – it is sad that there are a number of incidents of hate crime that are directed at people because of their hiv status. Terrence Higgins Trust and Galop can provide excellent independent advice and support for people dealing with the police.
