“There is no immigration because we are all human. If a British person can be an ex-patriot in Africa, then we are all ex-patriots here, seeking a better life”.
Compiled from real life interviews with asylum seekers and refugees living in the North of England, ‘To Walk In Your Shoes’ explores the side without a voice. With stories from Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Eritrea and recounting their experiences living in the UK, the play explores the strength and resilience of the human spirit and challenges the myths and untruths perpetuated by the media.
( play not suitable for under 12’s)

Free Film Screening: Life in a Greek Refugee Camp
Click here to book
In 2016 governments within the EU closed their borders, leaving almost 60,000 refugees stranded in Greece. Faced with hosting the refugees, the Greek Government decided to reopen a number of closed-down army camps as temporary residences and called on the army to set up and manage the camps.
The film produced by Tim Kelly, Lecturer at the University of Coventry and writer and director of a number of award-winning short films, explores the role of the army and NGOs in organizing the camp, the daily lives of the refugees and the evolving relationship between the locals and their new neighbours. Director: Yiannis Koufonikos, Writer: Christy Kelly.
The School of Education and Professional Development will be hosting a screening of the short 45 minute film with a Q&A with Tim Kelly at the end.
