Can the Displaced Speak?

Young Refugee Women Negotiating Identity and Belonging

Through the Camera Lens

A project conducted by Neila Miled and Young Refugee Women
 held at Knox on Tuesday, February 26, 2019

This PhotoVoice project tells the stories of eleven young women who have experienced displacement. It captures the emotions, journeys and memories that a group of Muslim and Christian refugees from different cultural, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds have chosen to share regarding identity, belonging, the notion of home, and their school experiences. (Exhibit shown at the Liu Institute for Global Issues Nov 2018 -Jan 2019).
