Community Celebration Heritage Storytelling/Poetry/Spoken Word

Join us for a moving multimedia presentation of spoken word, film and music. Award-winning poet Anton Floyd, a refugee himself, shares excerpts from his remarkable collection Depositions.

A new collection on the theme of exile and forced migration, translated into 25 languages now published in Gaelic, Irish, Welsh and Scots to celebrate World Refugee Day.

Entrance is free, but donations would be gratefully received.

In 120 short verses, presented in the form of an epic journey, we collectively witness the trials of being forced from home, the terror of desperate journeys, the struggles of adapting to a new country and the sadness of separation. Depositions with verses now translated into over 25 languages, presents a rare opportunity help us understand our common humanity. A wonderful example of the power of the arts to build stronger communities through sharing stories.

Program includes Live Music, Film, Book Signing, Refreshments. All proceeds from Book sales to UNHCR.
