TALK & SCREENING: Ordinary Treasures – Objects from Home
December 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+0
The short film Ordinary Treasures: Objects from Home asks the question “If you had to leave your home for your own safety, what would you bring with you?” and bears witness to what six International Protection Applicants and Refugees, who have been attending the Irish Refugee Integration Network (IRIN) English language classes, packed with them when fleeing their homeland. Made in conjunction with IRIN and the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies in Dublin City University (DCU), the film is underpinned by a commitment to solidarity and socially-engaged artistic practice, strives to encourage empathy and affective change through an emphasis on voice, object and story.
Film directors, Maria Loftus and Fíona Murphy from DCU, will introduce the film, accompanied by two International Protection Applicants, who will speak about the co-design process.
