Welcome To Our Jungle

1–30 October

Welcome To Our Jungle is a participatory photography project by the people of the Calais refugee camp, known as the ‘Jungle’ that gives a much-needed platform for the voices of those directly affected by the crisis. The project has been running since November 2015 to bring you the residents’ unique perspective and insight into the crisis, in an attempt to provide an all important counter narrative to the mis-representation they so often receive in the mainstream press.

This project is run by: Clare Struthers, Miguel Amortegui and Becky Matthews in association with Calais Action.

Please support the project further by donating to their campaign. Find out how here: welcometoourjungle.com

Please also see a new project soon to be launched here: usandthemproject.co.uk
