Poverty Over

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The centrepiece of the tour is a specially commissioned sculpture created by British artist Mel Howse and paid for by a sponsor.

The stunning sculpture takes poverty as its theme and explores the void between those inside the poverty trap and those privileged enough to be on the outside looking in.

It seeks to engage the viewer by showing an image one can recognise but not in the form one would expect; it is multi-dimensional, much like poverty.

Christian Aid will display a photographic exhibition alongside the sculpture showing their work with partners.

The images portray the challenge of the organisation’s vision to eradicate poverty.
