The Daneha Exhibition: Exploring Afghan Re-Settlement Around the Globe
Daneha, or “seeds” in English, is the name of a new exhibition at the Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre that seeks to create a multi-functional space where local artists can portray the distress and triumph of Afghanis and Persians forced to leave home due to conflict, and build a new life elsewhere.
The project was built in consultation with the local Afghani and Persian community, and features the work of artists like Avan Anwar and Gerrie Mifsud.
The project’s coordinator, Paschal Berry, joined Tess to delve deep into the background and content of the exhibition.
Daneha runs through to September. More information can be found here.
