Remaking Home: Refugee and Asylum Seeker Experiences – Thursday 8th November 2018

July 31, 2018

This guest posting is from  Dr Nilufar Ahmed, a Senior Lecturer in the College of Human and Health Sciences, Swansea University,

“You are invited  to be part of an event to be held on Thursday November 8th 2018 at the Volcano Theatre, High Street, Swansea.

This event is titled “Remaking Home: Refugee and Asylum Seeker Experiences”

Its aim is to explore the meanings of home and how refugee and asylum seekers remake home in distant lands and what makes a home – people or things?  This one day festival of home will explore the meaning of home for refugees and asylum seekers in Swansea at different stages of their arrival journey.  

There is a full programme of events with something for everyone, including:

  • a film screening
  • food from around the world
  • children’s activities 
  • a discussion on the construction and meaning of home
  • an exhibition of ‘home’ that will present artwork, photographs and testimonies of home.

The event is open to all and there will be opportunities for the wider public to  talk to researchers, refugees, and community activists to find out more about home and the refugee experience.

I am looking for individuals and groups who would like to be involved in this event. 

For more information please do get in touch and feel free to forward to anyone you feel may be interested.
