UK exhibit displays refugee artists' dangerous journey to Europe

'Sink Without Trace' aims to fund Alarm Phone, a telephone hotline for migrants in distress at sea.

    A new exhibition has opened in London which has empowered refugee artists to tell their own stories about migration.

    The exhibit, titled Sink Without Trace, features work by migrants who have made the dangerous journey to Europe. It hopes to offer an alternative perspective to the narrative written mostly by the media and government institutions.

    Al Jazeera's Charlie Angela reports.
