Although #coronavirus is challenging for our art academies exchange program participants, we were thrilled to see some outcomes of their work in clay and glass! Well done Bridget Bryna and Andrew Ssekibaaka! #culturalexchange#cocudicenter#coronaart African Studies Gallery המחלקה לעיצוב קרמי וזכוכית בצלאל Ceramics and Glass Department Bezalel
1% of humanity – 1 in every 97 people – is displaced, with fewer and fewer of those who flee being able to return home.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency’s annual Global Trends report, which comes two days ahead of 20 June World Refugee Day, shows that an unprecedented 79.5 million were displaced as of the end of 2019. UNHCR has not seen a higher total.
We are happy to share our dear friend's NeeNee Productions invitation to celebrate the directorial debut of Wimana Beatrice in a special World Refugee Day film event.
Life in My Shoe is Beatrice's first film, a documentary about her family's displacement from the Congo, and her tenacious pursuit of education in Uganda's Kyangwali Refugee Settlement. Beatrice personalizes the trauma of fleeing the Democratic Republic of the Congo as a child, the struggle to stay in school once settling in a refugee camp, and her determination to become a role model for other women in her shoe(s).
We invite our friends to join on June 20th 19:30 Uganda time, for a special live watch party of the film followed by a Q&A session with Beatrice and @Dennis O'Nen, the Director of @Cinelab Akademie in Uganda, a film training institute that provided the film's production crew.
