On our visit to the camp last weekend we meet Irish artist, activist and volunteer Liam Hourican. His work captures the spirit of the people and our friends currently living in the camp in an incredibly sincere way.
A lot of life for refugees in the camp is spent socializing and passing the time, drinking tea and discussing politics. While also patiently awaiting a chance to enter the UK and resume their lives with a degree of normality, after the trials of their travels to get to Europe after fleeing their countries.
Liams’ works captures the personalities of the people in the camp as well as their feelings and emotions, allowing us a glimpse into a life which is occurring geographically close to us, yet divided by papers which brutally separate us, confining them to the destitute land in which they find themselves living.
