This event saw Free Word host writers, poets, migrants and refugees look at where creativity, migration and flight intertwine. With readings, discussion and performance, the evening looked to provide a clearer picture of why people leave their homes and what it is like both to reach where you’re going to and to find your feet once there.
This event ended with an English-language discussion, which featured a panel of Polish, Eritrean and English speakers. The Polish and Eritrean authors on the panel considered how their backgrounds influence their work, while local refugee worker Rita Chadha took a closer look at the realities of migrants and refugees in London.
