Hilan Gully’s exhibition Voices explores and
provokes conversations regarding representation in the climate movement.
The installation includes a film, protest boards and an interactive
poll. The film depicts 6 months of research Hilan has completed in
Liverpool to explore the voices of local Middle Eastern/Arab
communities regarding current climate change debates, and whether they
feel they are represented in these discussions. Whilst there is a vast
amount of evidence highlighting the disproportionate impact of the
climate crisis in the Arab region, Voices focuses on the lack of
representation, the consequences of this, and how it impacts everyday
efforts by local communities in addressing the climate crisis.
While the installation aims to provide the community with a platform in
climate conversations, it will also initiate conversations with the
Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and Metro Mayor on how to
improve the representation within the Liverpool City Region.
Hilan Gully is an artist and producer who uses art installations to
tell stories through film, sound, sculptures, and text. Hilan is
currently working on the ‘Generations for Change’ programme which
brings together six young people to produce a creative research project
on the experiences of Black, Asian, and ethnic minority backgrounds in
the Liverpool city region.
This exhibition is presented in partnership with Liverpool City Region
Combined Authority, Metro Mayor Liverpool City Region, Curious Minds,
Liverpool World Centre & Liverpool Arab Arts Festival.
