Friday 10th April 4-5.15pm BST
Every Spring, Jewish communities worldwide mark the seven days of Passover by telling and retelling the story of how the ancient Jews left enslavement, more than 3,300 years ago. The Exodus. Passover, like so many cultural festivals, isn’t just about stories of the past. It is a time to reflect on who we were, who we are and where we are going.
According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) there are 65.6 million individuals forcibly displaced worldwide because of persecution, conflict, violence, or human rights violations. What of their journey home or their chances to move forward to a new life especially during the Covid-19 crisis? With little coverage of refugees in our mainstream media at this time, this is a moment to ask difficult questions and connect with inspiring provocative artists.
Join speakers from HIAS and Save the Children and artists Inua Ellams, Rachel Rose Reid and Daniel Gouly for this hour of music, poetry and first hand accounts of the migration experience.
