The real experts on poverty are participants from The Roles We Play invitation OFS, a full-colour publication, exhibition and multimedia project from ATD Fourth World and artist and photographer Eva Sajovic.  They will be present to discuss what the exhibition means to them and what its key messages are.

Set in The Old Fire Station, a charity and social enterprise in the heart of Oxford, there will be a discussion around the impact of the stigma of poverty and benefits and how this affects those living in poverty in Britain today.

There will be a chance to ask questions and to think about how the knowledge and expertise of the real experts on poverty and welfare reform can be better included in policy and practice. Representatives  from the Old Fire Station, will also take part in the event by contributing their experiences and views.

After the discussion you are invited to a viewing of a selection from The Roles We Play: Recognising the Contribution of People in Poverty collection of photographic portraits and self-written biographies that explore the roles played by those living in poverty within their families, communities and society at large.
