Sanctuary/Sustenance film screening in Leicester

September 2, 2017 - September 3, 2017


Please join ART WORKS Projects at the Journeys Festival International (JFI) for an installation of AWP’s film Sanctuary/Sustenance. The film traces the journey of a family during the catastrophic events of displacement, on a path to sanctuary, and through the long process of rebuilding life in a new community.

Sanctuary/Sustenance aims to raise the public consciousness of these issues to a wide variety of people, and facilitate conversations about our collective responsibility to welcome refugees and encourage policy makers to act in favor of fundamental human rights for refugees and asylum seekers.
