Ciao beautiful people,
How was your month? Time flies by doesn’t it. Here we have been working away at streamlining all the content the student journalist have been generating. So, now you can access all their work here in our media hub - not to worry, we won’t crush you with email over load! You will receive the usual weekly arty refugee podcasts. Plus, you can access articles about refugee and post conflict communities on our Notes now.
Here are a few posts to get you going -
"In the age of climate change - do we need to redefine who a refugee is?"
Defining a Refugee - Dylan Bilyard, member of Oxford University, More here
“…schemes help to remove Afghan citizens from Taliban persecution, they do not always help with the reintegration processes that refugees must undergo upon entering a new country.”
Afghan Refugees in the UK: The Post-Migration Experience - Freya Ebeling, member Oxford University. More here.
We post these articles daily on our Notes profile - you can subscribe directly for updates or follow one of our social media channels - Arts4Refugees is our handle.
In case you missed the podcasts from last month - here are the ones since the last newsletter.
Finally, our interview with Lucia Colella. An undiscovered artist from London.
