The Norwich International Youth Project invites you to join us for the screening of a series of short films by Child Migrant Stories. These films explore the welcome (and non-welcome) experienced by young people who have migrated to the UK - from Syrian children on the Isle of Bute, to Iraqi Kurdish youth in Norwich.
The screening will include the following films (total length 75 minutes):
Child Migrants Welcome?
I am Well Here
Seeking Sanctuary on a Scottish Island
The screening will be followed by a Q and A with those featured in the films, chaired by film-maker Eithne Nightingale. The panel will include:
Sue Skipper - Co-Chair of trustees at NIYP
Shahan Toheed - member of NIYP (features in I am Well Here)
Mitchell Harris - co film-maker for Child Migrant Stories
Maurice Nwokeji - singer/song writer and former child refugee (features in Ugwumpiti)
This is a great opportunity to hear more about the work of the Norwich International Youth Project and to find out how you can get involved in supporting the project.
