An Evening of Conversation, Collaboration & Community with Giles Duley

You can book tickets here

“For the past few years I have been documenting refugee’s stories across the Middle East and Europe. Its been an experience that has changed my life. My hope is that with these evenings I can repay some of the hospitality and friendship I have received and create an environment that facilitates conversation and understanding. An evening where stories will be shared and action inspired”

“From 4th October till 15th October my exhibition, I Can Only Tell You What My Eyes See, will be showing at the Truman Brewery in London.

In the evenings there will be a gatherings based around food, collaborations and conversations. A hundred guests will sit and enjoy a feast of Levantine cuisine, a chance to talk to strangers and share ideas.

We will sit together at a beautiful table designed by The Future Kept, to enjoy the home cooked food of Nadeen and Louai, a Syrian couple who set up Sakbeh.

During the evening there will be a guided tour of the exhibition by myself, and as we eat – talks, music, a celebration of arts and debates on action that can be taken. Every night, a slightly different mix.

I look forward to seeing you there for what I hope will be a moving and inspiring evening!”
