Launch: 7pm Thursday 5 January 2023
Strule Arts Centre, Omagh is delighted to host the ‘Belfast Exposed Seen To Be Heard Touring Exhibition by Jennifer Willis’.
This ground-breaking photographic exhibition reflects the struggles and courage of a group of women who are living daily with a Secondary Breast Cancer diagnosis. This is an incurable form of breast cancer that has spread to another part of the body.
The exhibition features the stories of women in Northern Ireland who are united in a shared Secondary Breast Cancer diagnosis and their passion to educate the public on the need to transform secondary cancer care services. Willis developed a close bond with the women and made her studio a safe and welcoming place where they could come together. This helped to ensure empathy and understanding were at the heart of her work.
This thought-provoking exhibition tells the stories and campaign through photography and film and it will be on display in Strule Arts Centre from 5 to 28 January 2023.
