Stories matter.

They can be used to empower and to humanise. Or they can be used to dispossess and cause harm. 

For the last three years, Road to Refuge have asked audiences to challenge their perspectives on refugees by following in the footsteps of fictional character, Layla, whose journey educates us on the reality of seeking asylum.  

But Layla’s story is more common than we think. All around us in our community, there are stories of the dignity and strength of those who’ve risked it all for a better life. We think it’s time you heard them.

Road To Refuge, together with Australia's leading social justice law firm, Maurice Blackburn, are proud to present 'Stories About Hope' , an art exhibition that celebrates the human dignity, identity and strength of people from refugee backgrounds.

From the 20th - 25th of June at No Vacancy Gallery (Federation Square), you will find unique perspectives from people with refugee backgrounds whose incredible stories prove that your past does not define you, but instead can give you the strength to move forward with confidence. The exhibition will also feature two workshops: 'Home' and '#FightRight' exploring issues of identity, language and advocacy.
 

Say you're coming on Facebook!  

'Stories About Hope' was created by artist and producer Renee Dixson and curated by Amber Hearn.
