The Hague Peace Projects organised a public exhibition (The Survivors) in the Town Hall Atrium. It is based on the drawings by 11 year old Syrian  boy Taim Safar.

Taim and his family are living as refugees in Turkey. His former Syrian teacher and artist Bassam Alkhouri collected his drawings and they have become the focal point of the show in which 16 artists reflect on them

It has become a very sympathetic exhibition which is quite well visited by the public, at least when i was there. Here are some pictures of the works on show, except (alas!) for Saskia Burggraaf’s video which wasn’t working when i visited.
