In May 2015, Justice Centre interviewed 16 individuals: refugees currently seeking protection in Hong Kong as well as descendants of refugees. Each interviewee was photographed by Xyza in a location they chose to reflect their story and their message. Their individual stories share a similar theme; a common narrative of resilience and survival in the face of persecution and conflict. Today, the #SharedPasts stories, accompanied by a travelling photography exhibition, honour these common narratives shared by refugees, both past and present
We envision Hong Kong as a fair and inclusive society where even the most marginalised enjoy fundamental rights and access to justice.
