Nowruz/New Day presents the results of the unique collaboration between the Art Fund Collection of Middle Eastern Photography, assembled by the British Museum and the V&A and the Global Conversations, a group of refugees who meet on a weekly basis at nearby St. Chad’s Church in Rochdale who co-curated the exhibition with Touchstones.
The exhibition poses a range of critical questions about the collection of Middle Eastern Photography and, more generally, how the Middle East is presented through the media. Len Grant, photographer and creative lead for the community element will host the tour along with Touchstones’ exhibition team.
