Refugee Week is Australia’s peak annual activity to inform the public about refugees and celebrate positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society. To celebrate Refugee Week here at UON, we’ve partnered with NUSA and Student Central to host a screening of the award-winning documentary Cast From the Storm.
Cast From the Storm tells the story of a group of teenage refugees who share their extraordinary stories when they join Treehouse Theatre, an after-school theatre group. A coming of age story, this uplifting documentary shares the reality of what it means to be a teenager and a displaced person. This is the story of what comes after, and what it means to remake your home.
The screening will be followed by afternoon tea and a student panel on refugee experiences.
