Walking with Refugee Tales (Performance)
November 16, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In ‘Walking with Refugee Tales (Performance)’, audience members will be taken to different stations in the Crypt of Canterbury Cathedral, where they will hear stories from the Refugee Tales project, including The Prologue, The Visitor’s Tale, The Appellant’s Tale and The Refugee’s Tale. Stories will be read by Refugee Tales contributors, Patience Agbabi (former Canterbury Laureate), Hubert Moore (writing mentor at the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture) and David Herd (Professor of Modern Literature at the University of Kent and a co-organiser of Refugee Tales).
The Refugee Tales project was established in 2015 to highlight the fact that the UK is the only country in Europe that detains people indefinitely under immigration rules, and to call for that practice to end. To share the stories of people who have experienced detention, while preserving their anonymity, the project pairs established writers with people who have experienced detention.
This performance follows on from ‘Walking with Refugee Tales (Illustrated Talk)’ on Thursday 15 November.
