Missing persons: lost and found in Paris

17 November, 2017, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Paris Centre for Migrant Writing and Expression has been working with migrants and asylum seekers in Northern Paris for over five years. As part of this year’s Being Human festival, the Centre will be running a series of workshops with a group of asylum seekers and local secondary school pupils to explore the connections and contradictions found within the place names of Paris. This includes their histories, modern resonances, and the diverse meanings that they generate for the migrants making their way to and through these areas.

As the culmination of these workshops, this public exhibition and presentation will reflect on the challenges and resources that can be deployed for those trying to find themselves in a radically strange and potentially hostile environment. Come along to an evening of reflection and opportunity to view the photographs, signs, images and stories produced by their participants. The evening will be concluded with a drinks reception.
