POW! Festival - Protest to Progress photography exhibition

Friday 5th March 9.30am - Monday 8th March 7.30pm

By photographer Bex Wade

For the past 4 years, photographer Bex Wade has been relentlessly documenting the passage of protest in our tumultuous contemporary world, spanning a multitude of movements, demanding change, reform and voicing dissent. This powerful exhibition features their protest images displayed in the shop windows along Northdown Road.

Amongst a fractious political landscape where the rights of women, trans+ people, migrants and people of colour have been increasingly threatened, the shop windows of Margate’s Northdown Road provide spaces for these faces to be witnessed and enveloped in their overt glory.

Bex Wade is a portrait and social documentary photographer, living in London and taking photos wherever there are people. Their clients and published work include BBC, Buzzfeed, Dazed and Confused, The New Your Times, Time Out NY, and Vice.

Northdown Road has wide pavements, drop curbs and plenty of parking.

All photographs featured here are the work of Bex Wade. Find out more about Wade’s work on their website
