Great Yarmouth - Diverse Perspectives

Time and Tide Museum of Great Yarmouth Life, 16 Blackfriars Road, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, NR30 3BX

Free - regular museum ticket fees apply.

This exhibition is connected to research by the UEA School of International Development that looks at the interplay of perceptions and reality of migration inequalities, prosperity and political attitudes in Great Yarmouth.

As part of the research project, a team from the University conducted interviews with Great Yarmouth residents, some of whom had a migrant background and some who did not. Interviewees were then invited to take part in a photography workshop with MA student, film-maker and photographer Matthew Barwick. Following the workshop, participants were encouraged to take photographs of their experiences of migration, with themes such as accommodation, living situations and interactions in the street.

This exhibition showcases the resulting photographs, giving an insight into the lives of the diverse communities of Great Yarmouth.
