KHRP and Spring Projects to Host Fundraising Event for the Halabja Community Play Project
KHRP and Spring Projects will host a fundraising event on 11 June in support of the Halabja Community Play Project, a scheme led by photographer Tom Carrigan to construct a playground designed by local children in the town in Kurdistan, Iraq, which remains impoverished and neglected more than 20 years after the chemical attacks that killed over 5,000 civilians there in March 1988.
In addition, the evening will profile Kurds: Through the Photographer’s Lens, a collection of photographs, poetry and writing commissioned by the Delfina Foundation to celebrate 15 years of work by KHRP.
The event will take place at Spring’s Ten SP bar in Kentish Town, London, and will showcase creativity from the Kurdish regions. This will include a programme of contemporary short films, including Bawke (Dad) by Hisham Zaman, Satellite by Rahim Zebeihy and Shoes by Shahram Namiq.
Free tickets are available through RSVP only. To reserve your place please email
