ESRC Social Science Festival 2018
This one day event was packed events throughout the day. There were wonderful workshops for children and adults alike, as we explored the meaning of home. A giant world map was on the wall for people to trace their journeys to Swansea, some were straightforward, others were convoluted.
Talks were delivered by young refugee and asylum seekers to a broad audience of attendees about their daily lived experiences and how home was a fleeting concept, one that could be taken away from them at the shortest notice. Through tears and laughter, stories of loss and belonging were shared.
Films were screened across the day and there was lots of free food and interactive workshops.
