REFUGE

05   /   12   /   2018

‘Refuge’ responds to the migrant crisis in Europe and the state of homelessness of millions of people. It reflects on the situation in South Africa, where a similar state of homelessness is common place. Migrants flowing into South Africa from the rest of the continent, have lead to the rise in xenophobic attacks over recent years. The project was conceived as a response to the question ‘how might we create empathy for refugees?‘ and the follow on question, ‘how could we start telling different stories on the topic of the refugee crisis in order to change attitudes and create a new narrative?’
