Refugee communities (Year 12 and 13)
- Monday 1 February 2021 (13:15-14:15)
Year Group: 12 and 13
Subject(s): Theology and Religion
About: Millions of refugees have fled war and persecution in the Middle East and have found refuge in the UK and other parts of Europe. How can we depict their refugee journeys and experiences and present them to the public, to schools and young people?
In this talk, we will show how through the use of art and new technology we offer refugees different spaces to articulate their personal narratives of loss but also of hope in building new lives in their new home countries. We will introduce the use of expressionist art, augmented and virtual reality to show how these platforms allow us to understand refugees’ lives, belief and values systems.
Speakers: Dr Yafa Shanneik and Artist Rachel Gadsen
