In conversation with… voices from a modern crisis

29th November 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Exeter Poster - A3_fixThere is one large story of conflict, political unrest, famine, lawlessness and oppression; there are other smaller stories of people and their lives. These are the stories from a vast Diaspora, from Sub-Saharan Africa to the Middle East.
Their arduous journeys for refuge brought them along an ancient road, and through other conflicts, the Arab Spring, work, sadness, loss, hope loneliness and love. And to a refugee camp pegged between North Africa and Europe where they met Journalist Rory O’Keeffe and spoke to him of their stories.
Rory has recorded these powerful stories and his journey along the same ancient road and he will be with us on Sunday 29th November (7pm) at The Forum at Exeter University to present read and discuss the stories, his work and his findings.
Audaye Elesedy appears in his capacity as a broadcaster and Director of Exeter’s community radio station Phonic FM. He will be talking to Rory O’Keeffe about his work, the book and his recent visits and recording of the conditions in ‘The Jungle’ at Calais. Audaye will also be putting questions from the audience to him, which may be sent in advance to mail@conversationswith.audaye.co.uk (Questions sent in advance have a stronger likelihood of inclusion)

You can find out more about Rory’s book from his publisher.
