FREE WORKSHOP
Refugee Journey
With Sandglass Theater

Modern Theatre, Suffolk University
525 Washington Street
Boston, MA 02111

FREE – RSVP Required (space limited)

Wednesday January 23
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Join Sandglass Theater artists for an interactive workshop and discussion designed to deeply engage audiences in both the human stories and the political circumstances that inspired BABYLON: JOURNEYS OF REFUGEES. Using an interactive board game format, ensemble members take participants through life in a refugee camp and the bureaucratic process of being granted refugee status. Experience the hopes, fears, and occasional luck of people fleeing war and violence. Following the simulation, participants will engage in community dialogue about their experience. A fantastic workshop for students, educators, activists, artists, information designers, and anyone looking to learn and cultivate empathy for the global refugee community.

Recommended for adults and teens.
