Open Generation is a social platform exploring young people’s views on immigration, diversity and promoting an open and tolerant society. Britain is increasingly multicultural and we want to celebrate its diversity by welcoming refugees and newcomers and challenging narratives about fear and migrants scapegoating.
Festival of Ideas
8 - 9 April 2016
Past exhibition & events
The five winners of this year’s Open Generation Photography competition will be exhibiting their work in the Autograph ABP Gallery at Rivington Place on Friday and Saturday April 8 and 9.
Photographers Tatenda Nyamande, Natalie Mitchell, Kyoko Takenaka, Erin O'Garro and Emerson Utracik – who are all aged under 25 - have produced work exploring the current immigration realities in the UK.
The competition, which is now in its second year, is sponsored by Open Generation, a social platform set up to explore young people’s views on immigration and diversity, and to promote an open and tolerant society. This year the five selected photographers were mentored by artist Gayle Chong Kwan, with the support of Lucy Keany, Autograph’ ABP’s public programme coordinator, and Clara Dublanc from Migrants Rights Network.
Their work forms a key part of the Open Generation Festival of Ideas taking place at Rivington Place on the evening of Friday April 8 and all day Saturday April 9. Topics to be covered at the event include discussions about what the priorities the London Mayor candidates should be; information about the current state of the refugee crisis in Europe; and the EU referendum.
