Displaced Dreams

Displaced Dreams

Ukrainian Youth Amidst the Conflict

The Displaced Dreams exhibition presents more than 100 photos and several short films created by Ukrainian teenagers who were scattered across different locations amidst the turmoil of war.

The artworks were produced during workshops led by KiNO - an organisation that offers free photography and filmmaking classes for Ukrainian teenagers and young adults – that have been running since March 2022. It showcases the works produced by participants from the London workshop, as well as those from Tallinn, Tbilisi, Zaporizhzhia, and various online workshops.

These stories are not about the war but about what happens against its backdrop – how teenage life flows, what is disturbed, what amuses them in times of uncertainty. How to cope with apathy in a sudden relocation? How to embrace your body when others perceive it as unattractive? How to avoid feeling nostalgic on the subway when the train emerges from a tunnel and the feeling of homesickness overwhelms you? These are some of the questions participants have explored within themselves and their surrounding reality through photography and film.

Tickets for the event are donation-based, so you can pay as much as you want. All contributions go directly towards funding the KiNO Project and supporting their mission.
