A series of first hand accounts from refugees and volunteers
The refugees’ entries will contain personal accounts detailing any part of their story they wish to share with the reader. It is an opportunity for them to dictate the narrative which so often they are the subjects of. The volunteers’ entries will be accounts from those working abroad and locally with refugees and asylum seekers, detailing an aspect of their experience which are generally alien to the public. The hope is to add a level of proximity to issues seemingly affecting people in a different stratosphere to ourselves.
Accompanying each entry will be an illustration in order to create a more visually engaging piece and to heighten the reading experience. Through such creative collaborations, we will be able to sensitively give voice to narratives which are difficult to articulate and often left untold.
