Following on from our two most recent symposia, looking at themes of justice and place respectively, this year’s symposium explores an important cross section of these themes: storytelling as a means of creating awareness of refugee and migrant issues, as well as its ability to provide moments of refuge in the midst of chaotic events. In a world where migration and refugees are constant talking points in political and cultural spheres, story and storytelling take on crucial roles in crafting and shaping narratives around migration and refuge. But story can also act /as /refuge; as a sanctuary for the lost, for the wanderer, and those who seek spaces of literal or metaphorical peace.

This symposium will explore these and related themes. Delegate may be provoked to think of connected themes of storytelling and diaspora, storytelling as a means of escape, storytelling as shelter or sanctuary. We aim to inspire, encourage and showcase exciting projects across a wide spectrum of storytelling activity. The two-day event takes place on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th April 2018 in The Atrium, University of South Wales.
