Refuge and Culture: the role of the arts in conditions of displacement event and discussion (London, UK)
June 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Lebanon has the highest number of refugees per capita in the world. Ahead of World Refugee Day on 20 June, this session will bring together members of UCL’s Institute of Global Prosperity and the RELIEF Centre to discuss the role of the arts in situations of mass displacement.
Poets, photographers, and academics working with RELIEF will present some of their work in order to prompt a conversation around a range of issues, including media representations of refuge and displacement, and how we might engage with displaced people more directly and more effectively.
