for the exhibition 'People Smugglers: friends or foe'

Exhibition Opening Sunday 10th April, 3 – 5pm 

Liberty Victoria and Amnesty International present a new exhibition that looks at the issue of people smuggling through the eyes of refugees. In a series of interviews, people from all over the world discuss how they came to Australia and the role people smugglers played in their journey. This exhibition explores the moral complexities of the people-smuggling trade. At the same time, it looks at the positive impact refugees have had on Australian society from the Second World War to the present day. 

Date: Sunday 10 April – Sunday 8 May 2011
