Dragons Warriors Dreigiau Rufelwyr
Photographer Nigel Whitbread, brings to the Exhibition at Home programme, Dragons Warriors Dreigiau Rufelwyr. This exhibition takes us back to July 2019 when Wales’ hosted the Homeless World Cup.
Wales’ Homeless World Cup saw more than 500 players representing over 50 countries travelled to Cardiff to attend the week-long free festival of football which took place in Cardiff’s iconic Bute Park, right in the heart of the Welsh Capital.
The images contained within this exhibition aim to reflect at its core, a representation of the broad cross section of homeless people in South Wales and accross the world. How they are all, despite their differences, trying to overcome the isolation and challenges they face from the rest of society, and how taking part in the Homeless World Cup gave them a sense of empowerment and the knowledge that they are part of something bigger than themselves.
Nigel as part of this important project has created a EBook to commemorate and ensure a long lasting legacy accessible to all. Click on this link here to download your free copy!
