The Childhood on the Move Virtual Exhibition
A collection of photographs and words from children and young people about their experiences of migration.
Across Family for Every Child, member organisations work with children on the move to ensure that they are provided with safe and caring environments. Listening and responding to the voices of children is central to this work, and this new Childhood on the Move exhibition, hosted in Family’s Virtual Gallery, provides a space in which these voices can be heard.
The exhibition draws on various projects carried out by Family in which the Photovoice method enabled children and young people affected by migration to discuss their experiences, and give recommendations for improving their care and that of other children on the move. Through the photographs and captions on display, children and young people- some of whom have travelled significant distances, such as across Central America to the USA, or from the Middle East through to Europe- describe the challenges they face as well as the strengths they acquire at different stages of their journeys. They call on policy makers to provide better protection during movement, improved support in host communities, and for all efforts to be made to ensure that families are not separated.
