Our Senior Students attended a theatre performance Bukjeh at the Footscray Community Arts Centre, as part of the Due West Arts Festival.
In Arabic, Bukjeh describes a small pack of belongings carried by travellers and refugees. The performance explored the refugee experience – the feelings, memories and experiences of home – and having to leave it. What an amazing and moving performance.
We also worked with one of the performers, Pepe, in a follow up writing workshop. A selection of our students work will be displayed in the Footscray Community Arts Centre. This event allowed us to once again work with the amazing people at 100 Story Building.
