The Itinerant Exhibition “Poor and Worthy”

Displayed for the first time at the Palais des Nations in Geneva from the 18th until the 28th of June 2007, this exhi­bi­tion pre­sents pho­tographs taken by some of Heart’s Home’s vol­un­teers. Most of the people appearing in the pic­tures live in neigh­bour­hoods where Heart’s Home is active. Through the depth of their looks, the ten­der­ness of their smiles, chil­dren and elders do more than simply catching the public’s atten­tion. They touch and ques­tion our deepest selves. They remind us that even in the most dra­matic sit­u­a­tions or despite harsh living con­di­tions, any person’s dig­nity is left untouched.
