Children's Voices

BY FELICITY LAURENCE
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 18, 2019

Felicity Laurence delivers an inspiring presentation on the ways refugee children express their inner feelings through music and songwriting. She shares with us examples of the songs they wrote together, and the stories behind them.

"Long ago, I met some children who lived in Ethiopia. They had suffered war and famine. These children wrote pages, and pages and pages about their lives and their thoughts and they gave it to me. They wanted their stories to be heard."

Lunar Perspective

BY ELOISE MALTBY MALAND
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 18, 2019

Eloise Maltby Maland initiates a discussion on our relationship to territory, belonging and otherness in her fascinating work. From the Lunar House to the Moon and back on Earth, she uses notions of space travel and satellite images to question the way we map, control and understand the space around us.

"Notions of space travel transport us away to look back and see the Earth from a new perspective. Looking up to the skies in order to return the gaze on ourselves, to understand and question the Earth, evoking ideas of territory and wonder."

Refugee Tales: changing the landscape, changing the language

BY AVRIL LOVELESS
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 18, 2019

Avril Loveless talks about her work with The Refugee Tales, a walk in solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers modelled on Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. They work with established writers to tell the tales of individuals who have experienced detention in the UK, and call for an end to indefinite detention.
