Supporting refugees and being inspired by their stories is the main focus of this event, which is in collaboration with Wycombe Refugee Partnership, Bucks New University, High Wycombe Helping Others, Amnesty International and Wycombe Quaker Meeting.
This event is an opportunity to learn about local initiatives as well as those in France and in Samos, including special guest speakers Prof Eleonore Kofman (Middlesex University), Tom Doust (High Wycombe Helping Others), Taz Mohamad (Slough Refugee Support) and Toni Brodelle (Wycombe Refugee Partnership). An exhibition featuring posters of photographs from the Magnum photo agency will also be on show; from an exhibition recently held at London’s Southbank Centre by Amnesty International.
