'Space for Sharing' photographic exhibition launched today in Winter Gardens

As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, a new exhibition will be displayed in Sheffield Winter Gardens from Monday 31 October to Friday 11 November exploring empathy and trust in a digital world.

This powerful exhibition features images by the photographer Anton Want and findings from the 'Space for Sharing' project to illustrate how people share information online when they are in extreme circumstances, such as terminal illnesses and natural disasters.

All are welcome.
