Awareness. The message of this year’s celebration for World Refugee Day was that we are all local residents in our cities and that we share more with refugees than we realise.
Awareness. Schools students from the Col·legi Mare de Déu dels Àngels display the result of [Rec]fugiades, a project they’ve been working on during the school year to give visibility to refugees.
Awareness. We’re celebrating World Refugee Day on 16 June, a family day to stand up for and celebrate that we are and will continue to be a welcoming city.
Awareness. The opera ‘La Maternitat d’Elna’ and the concert ‘Mars d’acollida?’ are two of the activities programmed over the coming weeks to stand up for the right to refuge.
Refuge. The communication campaign will be using various pieces by students from the Escola Joso, a centre teaching comic and visual arts and which has worked on the topic of refuge on other occasions.
Refuge. A documentary by ‘La Directa’ shows the stigmatisation of LGBTI Moroccans in their country of origin and during their search for asylum.
Reception. A number of unaccompanied minors request international protection. Do they follow the same reception itineraries as the rest?
Solidarity. The NGO Dibujos por Sonrisas presents the book ‘Diferente’, a joint work by 140 illustrators to raise money for refugee camps.
Interview. We spoke to Edinson Cuéllar, a Colombian lawyer working on the Colombia peace process from Barcelona and helping the voice of exiles to be heard and heeded.
Culture. We make the most of Sant Jordi to suggest reading on exile or written in exile by women, some of them well-known and admired, others forgotten and to be admired.
