Celebrating Refugee Week 2022
From the 19th-25th of June, Refugee Week is being recognised across Australia, with the theme of healing being chosen for 2022. Discover how storytelling can be a powerful tool in the healing process in the AACTA Award nominated series ‘Woven Threads: Stories from Afar’. Over eight episodes, hear the honest and emotional stories of young refugees from all around the world.
It seems surreal that in the span of just five minutes, you can be immersed in a uniquely vivid experience of a person’s story. You hear the real voice of each person, as they take you on a journey from their home to reach a land unknown. This is really what this groundbreaking series excels at, placing the person at the core of their own story. Void of the politics and public discourse surrounding refugees and asylum seekers, ‘Stories from Afar’ focuses on the stories of real people to remind us of the faces behind these experiences. If you haven’t watched the episodes in the ClickView libraries yet, make ‘Stories from Afar’ essential viewing for Refugee Week.
