Why Folkestone? 
A question that newcomers to Folkestone are asked frequently.
This project aims to create a new photographic narrative of a town that is changing demographically. 
It also aims to start difficult conversations around the idea of home, belonging and the implications of migration and the local communities in Folkestone. 
It hopes to push boundaries by bringing together different groups of people who generally don’t have much, if any, association with each other in a gallery space to promote integration, acceptance and coexisting.  
This project will encourage diverse groups of people to take part in different activities and enable their voices to be heard.
A new exhibition for Platforma 5Presented alongside her previous project Even This Will Pass, work depicting the journeys and experiences of Eritrean refugees into the United Kingdom.
