It is through everyday items that a home is created, and small acts of solidarity help create this. 

Museum Without a Home is an award-winning exhibition by Oxfam, showcasing items donated by the Greek population in solidarity to those seeking protection in Greece. The exhibition has toured around New York, Greece, across the U.K and it is now being hosted at The Exchange, Bush House from 25-30 March.

President of KCL STAR,  Anya Jhoti, said, "We are delighted to have the exhibition at King’s to remind our fellow students how essential a home and family are and how easy it is to support refugees. "

The exhibition is a celebration of the work being done to welcome refugees across Europe and as part of a wider campaign focused on U.K. family reunification laws. This campaign, made up of a coalition of NGOs and refugee organisations, calls for a wider definition of family, campaigning for child refugees to be able to bring their parents to the U.K. and to reinstate legal aid for this process.

The free exhibition opens on 25 March and forms part of a season of events in The Exchange exploring home, belonging, borders and identity. 

We encourage you to follow the acts of solidarity you see today and take a small step towards a big difference in families across the U.K.

 Anya Jhoti, President of KCL STAR
