Tsunami art show set for British tour

Christian Aid is launching an exhibition of artwork inspired by last year’s Asian tsunami in a bid to maintain coverage and counter compassion fatigue.

The exhibition, 'Every Time I See the Sea – Life After the Tsunami', will document how £400m of donations has been spent, and encourage further support for the relief fund.

'In a year of so many disasters, it's hard to get coverage in the face of compassion fatigue,' said Christian Aid PR manager Kate Wills.

'We will tell tales of survival and show hopeful photography and sculpture.'

Christian Aid is in talks with a national newspaper about a feature to promote the exhibition, which starts on 9 December.

The exhibition will debut at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, London, before going on tour around the country. It will include photography by Tim Hetherington and sculptures by Emma Summer.
