You are invited to our Thematic Workshop titled Hearing the Unheard: How you and your organisation can encourage the voice of people seeking sanctuary.
The workshop takes place in Swansea YMCA on September 25th from 9:30am-4:00pm.
Spend the morning with us to discover ways of encouraging the voices of people seeking sanctuary using innovative methods such as art, drama and creative writing. This will be followed by an afternoon of activities which support and share ideas about how organisations and individuals could take action to welcome and support Asylum Seekers and Refugees.
Throughout the day, there will be presentations and workshop sessions delivered by our supporters, including the West Yorkshire Playhouse, African Community Centre, Oasis, Hafan books and the UK’s first Shop of Sanctuary Oxfam Castle Street.

The workshop ties in with the Taliesin’s showing of Nine Lives, ‘Fleeing from his home in Zimbabwe where a fresh wave of homophobia threatens his life, Ishmael has sought sanctuary in the UK. Dispersed to Leeds, Ishmael waits to hear his fate, he waits for a new life to begin amongst strangers. Strangers who don’t trust him and don’t want him there. But not everyone is bad… can he find a place to call home again?’ We’d encourage workshop attendees to see the play to finish off the day.
