This Refugee Week we want to share our New Dreams

We are excited to share with you New Dreams: a moving digital exhibition created online with our members in collaboration with our local theatre- the Gate Theatre.

Made in honour of Refugee Week 2021 this digital exhibtion is a personal and moving celebration of identity, connection, creativity, activism and voices whose stories are rarely told.

NEW DREAMS DIGITAL EXHIBITION 

Featuring beautiful art, insightful podcasts, creative writing, and a powerful film, this exhibition is a moving testimony to the lives of our members navigating the hostile environment.

”Immigration is the key to all doors in this country. While trying to sort out your papers, you will need to make many turns to overcome many obstacles.You will be scammed, go through abuses of all sorts, bullying and exploitation of all kinds…”  From Where is Home? By Faosat 

Above: Inspired by the theme of Refugee Week 2021, ‘We cannot walk alone’, the Migrants Organise Women’s Group  created a series of paintings and podcasts entitled ‘Footsteps to Freedom’. First Image (left) by Marie Paul and second by Omoloa.
