Giovanna Del Sarto and Bern O’Donoghue present “Another Crossing” at Hastings Debates, 28 February 2018

Another Crossing is a collaborative artistic venture by documentary photographer Giovanna Del Sarto and visual artist Bern O’Donoghue, in which they bring their work together to track experiences of precarious living in the framework of the current European humanitarian crisis. Both work though their art to explore our response to the displacement and suffering of those from afar seeking sanctuary with us, using a combination of photography, installation, and discussion. Felicity Laurence from Hastings Community of Sanctuary invites us to join two remarkable artists and talk about crossing cultural boundaries.
