    REFUGEE JOURNEYS THROUGH THE BALKAN ROUTE: A CRISIS NO MORE?
    DAILY
    12–18 NOVEMBER 2018

    Explore the stories of migration and the refugee crisis in Serbia, Macedonia, and Greece

    Speak with researchers from the IR Aesthetics project, join a panel discussion with contributions from academics and activists, view and respond to a photographic display, watch a short film and take part in a quilting activity.

    This project raises questions about the lived experiences of refugees on the Balkan Migration Route and will present a series of activities that will encourage you to think more deeply about what it means to be a refugee fleeing persecution.

    Throughout the week, the projects hopes to open up discussions and debates about the refugee experience, the notion of transcending borders and to help people to think more deeply about what it means to be a refugee in the modern world.

    This project is presented by University of Liverpool, an Associate of Tate Exchange Liverpool, with Gemma Bird (University of Liverpool), Amanda Russell Beattie (Aston University), Patrycja Rozbicka (Aston University) and Jelena Obradovic-Wochnik (Aston University).
