Stories of Each Other: Do We Care
Wed 22 Jun 2016 at 6pm
Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, London, EC1R 3GA
Presented by: Free Word in association with Counterpoints Arts and Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants
We are delighted that this event will include readings by refugees from the Islington Centre as well as our Writer in Residence, Sita Brahmachari.
On the eve of the European referendum, come and hear from writers, poets and newly arrived communities about the experience of leaving home and what happens when we arrive in a new place.
Hear stories from across decades and from all around the world as writers from Iraq to Sri Lanka, Ethiopia to Iran and many nations in between recount their experiences. Hear readings to uncover the reality for those fleeing conflict, poverty or terror. Listen to tales that build empathy, community and understanding. Join Marina Lewycka, Kamila Shamsie, Deborah Levy, Inua Ellams and Jan Krasnowolski, with many more, to understand the countless experiences of migration.
All ticket proceeds from this fundraising event will go towards creative writing workshops at the Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants.
