Refugees from Iran and other countries display art in Miami

A group of women living in a refugee camp in the village of Diavata — near Thessaloniki, Greece — displayed artwork during Miami Art Week in an exhibit called “One World Show.”

The project, set up by Art 4 Humanity, features photographs taken and modeled by women.

We are told that proceeds from sales of the show will go to the photography school – set up by the non-governmental organization Quick Response Team, which trained the women.

The school that has trained more than 50 aspiring photographers – who fled countries like Afghanistan, Syria and Iran – works with “refugees fleeing conflict around the world…as a way to develop their creative skills, reclaim their voice and re-establish their identity”. it says.
