Refugee Week 2016
Refugee Week, a national campaign to help raise awareness of the wonderful contributions that refugees make to our society, takes place from 20th to 26th June. To celebrate, local schools, along with PRIME Theatre, Swerve Dance Theatre Company and Create Studios are coming together to present a one-off show at Swindon Dance featuring drama, dance and film, inspired by refugees’ stories from local refugee charity, The Harbour Project.
There will also be the unprecedented opportunity to view works of art by acclaimed local artist David Bent and by visitors to the Harbour Project. This is part of the Swindon 175 Arts Trail.
MOVEMENT 2000 is a series of pictures, uncanny in its prescience. Influenced by images of the Bosnian refugee crisis and created nearly 20 years ago, it has as much, perhaps even more, resonance now. The art group at the Harbour Project has used this collection to inspire them in depicting their own journeys to safety.
Tickets for the performance, together with the art exhibition are £5, but are very limited. Please book now at Swindon Dance on 01793 601700 to avoid disappointment.
