Feeling at Home - Pop-Up Exhibition

Feeling at Home: photos by people with learning disabilities sharing their experiences of living in group homes.

We are delighted to be hosting this pop-up exhibition at Ffotogallery from 11 - 21 October 2023.

Feeling at Home shows work from 19 photographers with learning disabilities from across Brighton and London. They have been meeting together in small groups to reflect on what helps them feel at home, and what gets in the way of this. The exhibition provides an opportunity for the public to see the world through the eyes of people with learning disabilities, and to reflect on their own responses to this work.

The exhibition is part of the Feeling at Home research study, funded by the National Institute of Health and Care Research’s School for Social Care Research. We have used photovoice, a research method where people tell their stories, share their experiences and work towards improving their lives through photography.

We are also facilitating a practical online workshop on photovoice on Wednesday 18 October, led by Dr Deborah Chinn.
