A Skimstone Arts photographic and film exhibition, documenting refugee camps in Iraq and Syria by photojournalists and Associate Artists Ako Ismail and Shahor Omar. The exhibition explores how in one day, something so dramatic and life changing can force people, including children, who were leading normal lives, to suddenly become refugees fleeing their homes, and survivors looking for a safe place.

This exhibition also features 'The Smell of Apples', a short film that tells the story of Azad, who survived the chemical attack on the city of Halabja on 16th March 1988, during last days of Iran/Iraq War.
