REFUGEE WEEK: Sanctuary in the Arts (Panel)
21 June 2017, London
Refugee Week is the UK's largest festival of arts, education and cultural events to celebrate the contribution of people who have sought sanctuary, and to encourage understanding between communities.
Seeking sanctuary in the arts
Continuing the week's theme of how to build a culture of hospitality rather than an environment of hostility, playwright Gaël Le Cornec (The Last Days of Gilda and Frida Kahlo), author Gulwali Passarlay (The Lightless Sky) and film-maker Sue Clayton (Hamedullah: The Road Home) will discuss how the arts can help people think differently about people seeking sanctuary.
The event will include a book signing.
