Hammersmith & Fulham is full of incredible characters, and a local charity is showcasing some of them in a new exhibition tour starting at The Lyric Theatre.

‘Humans of Hammersmith & Fulham 2020’ is a unique photo exhibition tour presented by United in Hammersmith & Fulham. The charity hopes that it will take away prejudice and exclusion, and inspire belonging, discussion and sharing.

The collection of photographs and interviews was collected by United staff in collaboration with portrait photographer Nahwand Jaff.

“We invite anyone to come and see this exhibition which will continue to form a living catalogue of individuals from Old Oak to Sands End.” said Kevin McGrath, Chair of United in Hammersmith & Fulham.

“It really shows how wonderful our borough is and the value of all the communities within it. Those who are strangers but neighbours with so much in common too.”

The exhibition, which is open for free at the Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith, was launched at a reception attended by many of the ‘Humans’ themselves – including campaigner for unaccompanied child refugees Lord Alf Dubs.

United in Hammersmith & Fulham is a local organisation that inspires and helps fund activities that promote a strong sense of togetherness in our diverse London borough. This is achieved by connecting those who want to support the community with local causes that will best use their investment.

Humans of Hammersmith & Fulham 2020 will tour the borough in various venues. You can currently view the exhibition for free at The Lyric Theatre, 9am to 11pm, Monday to Saturday, until 22 February.

You can keep up to date with tour venues through the year on the United in Hammersmith & Fulham website or by following the hashtag #HumansHF on Twitter.
