|Hilan Gully - Voices
October 28 - November 7
Private view: 6pm, Thursday 28 October
Hilan Gully’s exhibition Voices explores and provokes conversations regarding representation in the climate movement.
installation to be shown at OUTPUT Gallery includes a film, protest
boards and an interactive poll. The film depicts 6 months of research
Hilan has completed in Liverpool to explore the voices of local Middle
Eastern/Arab communities regarding current climate change debates, and
whether they feel they are represented in these discussions. Whilst
there is a vast amount of evidence highlighting the disproportionate
impact of the climate crisis in the Arab region, Voices focuses on the
lack of representation, the consequences of this, and how it impacts
everyday efforts by local communities in addressing the climate crisis.
the installation aims to provide the community with a platform in
climate conversations, it will also initiate conversations with the
Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and Metro Mayor on how to
improve the representation within the Liverpool City Region.
