The Art of Empowerment

Thursday 21 June 2018

New Art Exchange, 39–41 Gregory Boulevard, Hyson Green, Nottingham NG7 6BE

18.30–20.30

Film and panel discussion

Join us for an inspiring insight into some of the ways that asylum seekers and refugees are using the creative arts as a source of self-empowerment. We will screen The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe, a documentary following four charismatic African women who fled as refugees to Australia, and turned their stories of survival into theatre.

Followed by a panel of inspiring writers, theatre directors and cultural activists from within and beyond the Nottingham refugee community, including poet Mirriam Mutanda.
