Opening 13th April at 5.30pm
An exhibition exploring everyday life in Ethiopia through collections of objects and images. It aims to provoke questions, challenge stereotypes and to offer insights into the rich cultural traditions of this ancient land – at a time of rapid socio-economic change and ongoing development challenges.
Dr Peter Kellett is an architect and anthropologist based in the Global Urban Research Unit in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape at Newcastle University. In 2013 he worked in Ethiopia as a VSO volunteer at Addis Ababa University. All the objects and images on display were collected during his time in Ethiopia.
The exhibition is a collaborations between Newcastle University, Addis Ababa University and Voluntary Service Overseas. It is funded by an award from NiCAP – Newcastle University Institute for Creative Arts Practice.
