Discover Fairtrade Gold Photo Exhibition at Ansdell Library, 59 Commonside, from Monday 23rd – Saturday 28th April.
Gold is a symbol of love, power and wealth the world over, but look behind the glitz and the reality is not so glamorous. Up to 16 million men, women and children are pushed in to small-scale gold mining by poverty around the world. Faced with numerous challenges to earn a fair price for their gold, life is tough, conditions dangerous and livelihoods for most are precarious at best. You can support marginalised gold miners to improve their livelihoods and communities by choosing and encouraging others to choose Fairtrade Gold.
The Discover Fairtrade Gold photography exhibition is a set of 16 striking images, quotes and stories from gold mining communities in South America and East Africa which bring out the challenges facing small-scale gold miners, and the difference Fairtrade can make to their lives. This exhibition is being shown across the UK and is currently touring venues across Lancashire.
White Church member Janet Sherwood, who is Chair of the Fairtrade Lancashire Group, has brought this brand new photo exhibition to Ansdell.It will be displayed at Ansdell Library from Monday 23rd April – Saturday 28th April. It is open Mon, Wed, Thurs & Friday 9am-6pm, Tues 9am-5.30pm and Sat 9am-5pm.
