20:20 vision is a dynamic arts and community legacy project from not-for-profits Salusbury WORLD Refugee Centre and FotoDocument, which celebrates the contribution of refugees to the UK. The work focuses on 20 children from diverse backgrounds who arrived in the UK circa 1999 and casts a long lens over their lives and achievements fast forwarding 20 years later to 2019. 20:20 vision uses photography, film, written & spoken word and visual theatre to capture the stories which will be showcased in a touring exhibition alongside archival photographs, significant objects, children’s drawings, letters, diaries and other relevant ephemera. The work is intended to inform, educate, provoke, influence and inspire audiences in the UK. Participating arts organisations include FotoDocument, Scarabeus and English PEN. Curation will be led by FotoDocument in association with London College of Communication.
