The War-Torn Children exhibition launches in Limerick on Monday 17th July at 7pm in the CB1 Gallery.
The aim of the exhibition is to raise awareness of the human impact of war and injustice, and to promote a culture of hospitality and welcome for refugees seeking sanctuary from war and persecution in Limerick.
A series of lunchtime events to coincide with the exhibition will take place, giving Limerick’s residents an opportunity to connect, engage in conversations about war and its impacts, and break down barriers that impede progress towards a better world.
For more details, please see the Facebook event page.
