Join us to launch an exhibition of work by visiting professor Shahidul Alam and to raise awareness of the international campaign for his release from detention in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

There will be an introduction by Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries, Professor Arabella Plouviez and contributions from invited guests.  All are invited to participate in a mass photograph to communicate our collective voice which will be shared and added to the thousands internationally who are campaigning for Shahidul’s ‘immediate and unconditional release’ (https://www.amnesty.org.uk/actions/free-shahidul-alam).

The exhibition runs 16-28 October 2018, as part of the UK-wide exhibition of work by Shahidul Alam, initiated by the Northern Centre of Photography, University of Sunderland, Autograph, London and Drik, Bangladesh.
