Colouring Words:Refugee Children Voices (Cruinniú na nÓg)

20 June, 2018

The Chester Beatty is delighted to co-host a workshop for children with the Dublin Greek Film Festival, supported by Dublin Culture Connects.

Led by the Dublin Greek Film Festival team, this art, film and writing activity workshop will educate the kids living in Ireland about the refugee kids who live in Greece. The event will kick off with the short movie ‘Painting…’ followed by a discussion and a drawing session where the kids will be asked to make their own drawing with a message for the kids that live in Skaramanga refugee camp in Greece. Our aim is to post those drawings to Greece. This event is organised as part of Dublin City Council’s Cruinniú na nÓg.

Movie summary: In the Skaramanga’s Refugee Camp, a group of children from Afghanistan paint their memories from the war and their journey to Europe. They depict through their drawings their city as they remember it, the city that they’ve found shelter in and the city that they wish to live in the future.
