World Aids Day 2013: Exhibition–Images of Otherness in Waterfront Hall


Logo of Positive LifeBelfast’s Waterfront Hall is set to host a photographic exhibition to mark World Aids Day 2013 and help raise awareness of HIV in Northern Ireland. The exhibition is part of a series of events co-ordinated by Positive Life (Northern Ireland’s only HIV-support charity). 

There is a launch event with light refreshments on the evening of Monday 25 November from 7pm to 9pm where there will also be a performance art piece to complement the exhibition.  If you would like to attend, please contact Jon McFarland at Positive Life on 028 9033 7739 or jon@positivelifeni.com by Monday 18 November.

The photographs in the ‘Images of Otherness’ exhibition have been created by people affected by HIV in Northern Ireland. They were asked to create some photographic images which deal with an aspect of daily life for people living with HIV or AIDS in Northern Ireland. The project highlights the difficulties people with an HIV positive diagnosis still face with regard to stigma.

Melt the myth image

I hope that as many people as possible will be able to see the exhibition while it is on show from Monday 25 November to Monday 9 December. I know that I am looking forward to seeing the photographs.
