Coinciding with the first day of the public appeal “Through Our Eyes” is a photovoice exhibition that shows what it means to live under the threat of fracking.
Exhibition organiser Dr Ania Szolucha, an anthropologist from the University of Bergen in Norway said: “The idea for the exhibition came from an ongoing research project that explores the social impacts of shale gas developments in Lancashire. The exhibition itself, however, is only possible thanks to a collective effort from many people.
The exhibition shows that even before fracking commences, it has very profound impact on the local communities and there is no better way of showing this impact than by using people’s own words and images.”
The exhibition takes place from 11.30am onwards on Tuesday 9th February 2016,
