Ongoing Journeys was produced by Rich Wiles in association with Counterpoints Arts.

This project would not have been possible without the support of various organisations, companies and individuals, and sincere thanks go to everyone.

Funding support for this project, in various contexts, has come from Arts Council England (‘Grants for the Arts’), the St. Hugh’s Foundation for the Arts, Hull City Council Arts Unit, and East Riding Council Arts Unit (in partnership with CIAC).

Sponsorship for production of the Ongoing Journeys photographic exhibition was kindly provided by GF Smith Photographic.

Finally, Rich Wiles would like to offer his personal and sincere thanks to all project participants with whom he has collaborated during the production of this project. All have given their time and energy towards its realisation for the benefit of everyone who will come across it.
