This powerful art exhibition features the portraits of 20 children who have died all over the world as the result of war and conflict.
These portraits symbolically represent all children who have died and result or consequence of recent worldwide wars and conflict. 20 artists resident in Donegal and the North West participated in this art exhibition.
This exhibition shows the reality of war and conflict through the eyes of these children. These children have a right to be identified, to have their stories told, to take their place in our conscience and in our memories. They died at the hands of others.
