This event consisted of an exhibition of prints from a work in progress project: "Begging in Northern Europe", together with interactive workshops. These explored the concept of begging; from why it exists to how it is perceived and what is in place to assist those who have to resort to it, using case studies of the cities of Birmingham, Lund and Copenhagen.

We invited the audiences to engage in Q&A sessions about the content of the prints as well as associated topics of begging, homelessness, poverty, social exclusion, super diversity.

There were two sessions, one at 13:00 and another at 18:00. The exhibition was open from 11:00 to 20:00.
