‘Coming & Going’ – looking at global migration & refugee issues
Change Makers Donegal will facilitate a workshop on the issue of global migration as part of this year's festival. The workshop is open to people of all ages, and is a free event.
“The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong in the world.” Dr. Paul Farmer
Migration is an issue that affects us all at some level. This workshop will consider the context and history of migration, the reasons people leave the homeland, the society they leave, their journey, & the society they enter. We will also look at the role of conflict in human displacement & the role of the media in reporting on migration & refugees.
