Refugees and Borders: Remapping the World We Think We Know

December 5, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

flyer final 201119 – Refugees and Borders

Borders are first imagined and then built. What we think borders can do is shaped by the stories we tell.
What is your border story?

Register today for this free webinar Refugees and Borders: Remapping the World We Think We Know where you can ask questions and participate in dialogue with lived-experience and academic experts.

Event Details:
05 December 2020, Saturday
2-4 pm Pacific Standard Time
Register HERE.

This webinar begins with a virtual screening of Borderstory, a Worn Words short documentary and dialogue-opener about what the word ‘border’ means to us. Following the film, cross-sector experts will engage questions as part of a panel discussion on the word ‘border’ and give concrete suggestions for policy and law. Participants are invited to ask honest questions and participate in dialogue based on personal experience and collective curiosity. As global and country citizens, we’ll imagine incremental ways our idea of ‘border” can increasingly become more human-centred and benefit the safety needs of people seeking refuge while honouring the practical need for boundaries.
