Build Hope in the City

For the first time in history, more than half the world’s people live in cities. Our stunning pictures from Kenya, Haiti and Bangladesh, taken by photographer Abbie Trayler-Smith, show the reality of urban life for some of the world’s poorest communities.


Build Hope in the City

These pictures will go on display outside St Martin in the Fields Church in Trafalgar Square, London, from 6 September to 30 October 2016. The exhibition, running in partnership with photo agency Panos Pictures, is part of Concern’s Build Hope in the City appeal. The appeal is helping families struggling in overcrowded and unsafe cities transform their lives.

The exhibition is taking place behind the chuch in the area next to the cafe in the courtyard (view location on Google Maps).

It will also be on display in the grounds of Belfast City Hall (18-25 September), the Diamond, Enniskillen (26-3 October), and Ebrington Square, Derry (3-10 October).

You can read more about the photographs and the stories behind them on our exposure blog.
