Refugee Journeys Through The Balkan Route


Tate Liverpool

Explore the stories of migration and the refugee crisis in Serbia, Macedonia, and Greece

This project raises questions about the lived experiences of refugees on the Balkan Migration Route and will present a series of activities that will encourage you to think more deeply about what it means to be a refugee fleeing persecution.

Throughout the week, the projects hopes to open up discussions and debates about the refugee experience, the notion of transcending borders and to help people to think more deeply about what it means to be a refugee in the modern world.

There will also be crafting activities including a quilting project within which we ask visitors to share their views on refugee movement.

The project is presented by University of Liverpool, an Associate of Tate Exchange Liverpool, with Gemma Bird (University of Liverpool), Amanda Russell Beattie (Aston University), Patrycja Rozbicka (Aston University) and Jelena Obradovic-Wochnik (Aston University).
