Join us for Face Equality Day!
9 May 2017
The day is created by the UK charity Changing Faces to raise awareness of facial diversity and to challenge prejudice against forms of appearance.
There will be different events throughout the day at Harrow Campus:
- A workshop with the burns survivor and campaigner Catrin Pugh on her experiences of media coverage of her own facial disfigurement – 2PM, Library Training Room
- An exhibition at Gallery West featuring the portrait series Birthmark/Naevus Flammeus by the Danish photographer Linda Hansen. The exhibition runs from 26 May – 11 June
- Stalls, information and give-aways on facial diversity in the Forum
