I’m very pleased to be backing the Migration Collective and its work in organising a “Living Library”, to be hosted by the Victoria & Albert Museum during Refugee Week.
A Living Library is a dynamic storytelling project, where people become books and have a chance in interacting with individual/small group of “readers” as they tell their own stories (you can find out more about this project on the Collective’s website, https://www.migrationcollective.com/living-library)
Refugee Week (19th-25th June) theme for 2017 is ‘Our Shared Future’. The Migration Collective is looking for people whose lives have been touched, or completely changed, by issues of forced migration: refugees, asylum seekers, people whose parents were/are refugees, migration practitioners, migration lawyers, interpreters,… . If you know anyone who you think might be interested in taking part in this project to tell their story, please send to the the project’s organisers at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
If you feel you have a story to tell about your experience working in forced migration issues you might want to get on board for the book project as well – though you if you’d like to be involved in just the Living Library you can opt-out of this part:)
