Hidden Stories: Refugees & Asylum seekers

“Many of the Hidden Stories group have had complex lives, and some have survived severe trauma. It was incredible to see how each of the participants has been supported to share their personal and imagined stories through morning workshops and one-to-one tutorials each afternoon during the three days. Some needed encouragement to share their work, but gradually, and because a safe space had been created for them, each participant was able to read their work in front of the group on the final day. They really had become a community of writers.”
