Refugee Week 2019

Jun 20, 2019, 01:15 PM
To celebrate World Refugee Day, we catch up with some of the extraordinary artists who have joined us here at Shakespeare’s Globe for Refugee Week.  Refugee Week happens in the UK every year around World Refugee Day, and is brought together by Counterpoint Arts.  We chat to our Refugee Week artist in residence Sabrina Richmond and American director, artist and educator Madeline Sayet. We ask: what can art offer when it comes to telling the stories of lived experience of displacement and migration, how can we tell these complex and layered stories and what role can Shakespeare’s work play in that dialogue?
