Presented by See The World Through Our Eyes Project
Admission free

Sixteen Burmese refugee children, age 13 to 16 — Zaw Naw, Hanah, Nilarson, Zaw Rein, Peter J, Neem, Grace Elly, Alex, Andrew, Amos, Suithlawntial, Joan, Maliani, Jonah, Myo Toe Aung, Sam Tun — living in Kuala Lumpur give us a slice of their lives here through pictures they took themselves.

Over the past few months, they learned the art of photography with the help of a small group of dedicated Taylor’s College students and staff, and support of British Council’s Global Changemakers and The Annexe Gallery. The project’s main aim was to allow these children to develop skills in the arts, have fun, and ultimately tell their story to the world.

These children have a native land that for 40 years has been ravaged and oppressed by a ruling junta. Here in Kuala Lumpur, their families struggle to make ends meet, and even more importantly they are not allowed to attend public schools.

Do you want to see through their eyes?
