Exile, the power of bearing witness and the written word: a moving forum

This Saturday’s forum was beautiful, moving, insightful and thought provoking. It was a tremendous example of what we are trying to achieve with the SFF; bringing experience and humanity together with theory to inform how we work and how we understand our work. Thank you Nasrin and Karen for your immense contribution.

TheRefugee VoiceNasrin and Karen provided a rich talk that dealt with many themes; the mind and body, oppression and depression, exile and loss of attachment, the importance of having a voice and that voice being heard. The talk was so rich that we will be added a discussion page for our forum members to connect with the material. Plus Nasrin & Karen have kindly agreed to let us post there talks on the SFF website. Watch this space, they shall follow shortly.
