Announcing Yemen: Say hello to connect

Described by the UN as the ‘world’s worst’ humanitarian crisis - what is the true human cost of the ongoing conflict in Yemen, and how can we understand it in the context of our own lives?

We’re proud to announce Yemen: Say hello to connect, a travelling digital artwork made in collaboration with Imperial War Museum North as part of their Yemen: Inside a Crisis exhibition.

Created with Artist Vicky Clarke and Creative Technologist Chris Ball, with poetry written and performed by Amerah Saleh, Yemen: Say hello to connect takes the conversation beyond the museum’s walls, inviting you to connect with the real issues people are facing in Yemen right now.

Where do you choose to travel when fuel is limited?
What happens to your future when the schools close?
And who gets to drink when the water runs dry?

Step inside this interactive installation to discover Yemeni stories and explore the choices people have to make every day.

Launch event at Hatch

Join us for a very special launch event at Hatch, 13 June 3-10pm. Experience the artwork, see Amerah Saleh perform, and catch a live broadcast from local arts and culture station, Reform Radio.
