Secret Art of Survival
25 October 2019 - 20 June 2020

Creativity and ingenuity of British Far East prisoners of war, 1942 - 1945

An exhibition of artworks and artefacts by Far East prisoners of war (FEPOW) revealing their conditions in captivity but also their spirit and resourcefulness. Their captors forbid the keeping of any records so the artworks were made secretly and most have never been displayed before.
