Refugees action Anglia Ruskin University
On June 20th 2018, the migration study group from our faculty together with the StoryLab Research Institute organised a one day symposium to celebrate refugee week by exploring challenges and opportunities in creative practice research.
This symposium provided a great networking opportunity for researchers, artists and critics who creatively respond to and critically engage with creative practice methods to respond to the refugee crisis.
During the day, a range of interactive presentations focused on political tensions and social change, as well as the personal, emotional and experiential dimensions of forced migration. Play writers, actors, photographers, novelists, artists and researchers alike made incredible contributions with a few collaborations emerging as a result of this.
