Framing Hope is a photography exhibition by Jillian Edelstein celebrating 25 years of fighting poverty with FXB International. When I went to Oxo2, little did I know that the venue holds various exhibitions. Remember the Garden Gate? Well, Framing Hope exhibition is just around the corner from The Garden Gate.
Another one of those London discoveries! Sadly, the exhibition is only running up to Sunday 31st August 2014, 11.00am to 6.00pm. It’s free and is based within the Oxo Tower Wharf, close to Coin Street. So if you happen to be in London in the next couple of days, look out for Framing Hope Exhibition and perhaps you can get there just before it ends. If not, look out for up and coming exhibitions for the future.
Framing Hope showcases the success stories of people from Burundi, China, Uganda, Columbia, India and Rwanda who have been touched by poverty and have seen their lives turned around by extensive work carried out by Jillian and FXB International.
From viewing the pictures displayed, it was evident how hope, persistence and support can bring people out of abject poverty as the images display stories of hope.
May be similar galleries will pop-up in the future and that we sail through life sparing a thought for those who are less privileged.
Very inspiring! What a wonderful idea to spread hope through this exhibition. Not only does it remind us how pervasive poverty is throughout the world, but that there are ways out. Well done:)
Thanks Jacqueline. The exhibition is a learning curve for us and it’s important to know that poverty can be eradicated with hope, resources and extensive work:)
Hi!! This post is very useful for my 3rd year major project for my fashion course. Thank you so much for this useful and inspiring post. I needed some inspiration. I will visit framing hope!
Thanks. You will be inspired by the exhibition and I hope you gain some useful insights for your major. All the best:)
What a great idea and clever name, Framing Hope. It is good to get a message out there that inspires and offers them hope of a better life. And will hopefully give those who are living a life of privilege a moment to stop and think.
A job well done to the photographer and coordinators who have given hope to many.
Hi bola; thanks for sharing this exhibit. like many things in life it all starts with hope. a positive outlook along with taking action can lead to big changes like these people in the photos experienced. I work to bring hope and optimism to everyone I meet. take care, max
Thanks Max. Without hope, it is difficult to experience positive changes.
Hi Bola – what a wonderful message and where would we be without hope. I have never heard of ‘Framing Hope’ before (lovely title) but I hope the word gets out and it has a chance to grow much bigger. I’m Canadian so fairly connected to England – maybe it could expand to Canada next and we could have a Framing Hope Exhibition.
Hi Lenie. I hope the exhibition expands to Canada and many more countries and that Framing Hope continues to spread the message of hope.
