The personal narratives of refugees reveal problems faced as well as sources of resilience and strength. These stories become an essential part of the work of researchers, NGOs and artists as they collaborate with refugees and each other.  Join us in exploring how the arts are taking integral roles in projects with goals such as conflict transformation, psychological healing, community building, and social integration.
