The prize-winning poet and translator will talk about his experience as a member of the Second Generation, his parent’s background in the camps, coming to the UK as a refugee from Hungary in 1956 and the creative process.
This exhibition features drawings by child survivors of the genocide and ethnic cleansing perpetrated by Sudanese government forces and the Janjaweed militia against non-Arab Darfuri people since 2003.

When Gerty Simon was forced into exile in 1933 she was one of many photographers who fled Germany and Austria during the 1930s. John March has made a study of the group of two dozen women exile photographers, some well-known, and others with brief or unrecognised careers.
