Refugees Across Spaces

Refugees Across Spaces

Opportunities for interaction between refugees and host communities are limited, especially since refugee communities are usually separated from the rest. The project, Refugees Across Spaces seeks to break the isolation of refugees and stimulate local integration mechanisms in their surroundings and societies through culture and its expression.

The project is a collaborative project between Regina Theatre, Uppsala and The Cultural Avenue; with financial support from the Swedish Institute. 

At Bayimba 2019, we invite you to visit “Walls We Built” Audio Visual installation curated by Annika Rachor where some of the work of the project will be showcased. In this space, co-hosted by the project, Refugees Across Spaces, you can lounge, interact and chit chat on different themes including identity, walls, borders, human rights and enjoy short poetry and dance performances by a select group of refugee artists.
