Walk My Journey
'The humans behind the headlines'... They say never judge a person until you have walked in their shoes, well never judge a refugee until you have walked their journey. Through music, documentary-style interviews and a live street performance, Theatre in the Quarter engaged 700 children, 25 schools, 6 refugees and 3 charities into this ground-breaking project. The aim was to 1) give a voice to those who are silenced 2) educate the younger generation as to the journeys and experiences of displaced people from across the world. Real life accounts are placed across the film, from Eritrea and Sudan to Chechnya and Afghanistan and interwoven with observational footage of three refugees as they walk their new journey in Salford, Greater Manchester. The film was first broadcast in Chester on the night that it was awarded City of Sanctuary status and has also been used across many schools as a source of education and insight. It is crucial that young people form their own opinions of the current refugee crisis through hearing personal accounts, and not just by relying on the press and social media platforms. Walk My Journey was programmed by the Royal Shakespeare Company during their Refugee Week activities in June 2019.
