A hundred years after the start of World War I, immigrant artists have joined together to give their interpretation of a changing world.

In the group show, entitled Borders, they take a reflective look back on their homelands and heritage and also how the war changed the world.

The purpose of the exhibition at Bernard Weatherill House, Mint Walk, Croydon, is to demonstrate the emergence of a new culture in the United Kingdom since World War I and bring about a sense of belonging and pride.

It runs until January 5 and is being managed by public arts organisation Undercroydon.

A spokeswoman said: "Before World War I in Britain there were no immigration controls.

"In recent years a revived sense of anxiety has grown due to the influx of immigration which has produced a growing backlash against bullying attacks and targeting immigrants on the results of recent economic issues.

"This exhibition aims to illustrate all the good things about being part of a diverse community as well as share important values such as; family, education, heritage and a sense of belonging."
