20:20 is a multimedia, touring arts and heritage project that casts a long lens over the personal memories of refugee families who arrived in the UK from 1999 onwards from Kosovo and other major global conflicts.

Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, 20:20 is led by Salusbury World Refugee Centre and co-curated by FotoDocument and London College of Communication. The project collects and explores the oral histories of 20 refugees over 20 years, creating artistic responses in the form of multimedia exhibitions and performance.

The stories focus on memories of homeland and agile adaptations to exile, exploring resilience, polyglotism and celebrating transnational culture in the UK. The artwork interprets the narratives through objects, film, illustration, typography, digital art, animation, motion design and graphic design – demanding a visceral audience response.

Salusbury World is a visionary London refugee charity, which has supported refugee children and their families for the past 20 years and 20:20 celebrates its 20th birthday.

The exhibition prototyped at the Victoria & Albert Museum in June 2019 and went on to be exhibited at London College of Communication in October as part of London Design Festival 2019.
