One day, I will

By watching films while standing in a replicate Azraq Refugee Camp home, exhibit-goers will take a multi-sensory trip into the lives of the Syrian refugee youth who not only designed the surrounding home details but also created the films to challenge and improve understanding of what it means to grow up as a refugee.

When I Grow Up documents the hopes of young people affected by humanitarian crises who are struggling to grow up in a world where their rights are regularly denied or abused.

Aged between 6-18 years old, the children and youths are photographed dressing up in the outfits of the adults they want to become. The photos highlight the vulnerability and also the great energy of today’s youth and how they can shape the future.
