Journey in Exile

September 22, 2019 @ 14:00 - 16:00

French | Open to all | Free | Registration required before September 10 (space is limited)

In recent years, we have heard a lot about the “refugee crisis,” the “refugee wave” and “migratory flows.” Yet these terms hide what is most deeply human in the experience of exile. “Journey into Exile” is a simulation that invites us to put ourselves in the refugee’s place, to remind us that a refugee is more than just a statistic, and to be aware that a refugee is first and foremost a human being whose life is not so different from ours but whose existence has been disrupted. Through this exercise, participants will become aware of the challenges and dangers faced by refugees, the difficult decisions they are forced to make, and the hardships they must endure, some of which can be life-threatening.
