Description

Sunday Seminar, 30th July 2017, 14.00 - 16.00

Other-ing: Working on the border

Tickets £5

Join Art Refuge UK’s Bobby Lloyd and Naomi Press for a talk and panel discussion.The talk will propose that the art therapy work currently being delivered by Art Refuge UK's team with unaccompanied minors and adult men in the Calais area of northern France acts in part to provide a form of psychological shelter. This is in a context in which both physical camps and temporary shelters are prohibited, and as a counter to the many human rights violations that are endemic in the France-UK border area.
