There’s No Place Like Home: Justice, Migration and the Arts is a mixed-media event exploring the relationship between justice, migration, detention and the arts.

The event will be headlined by award-winning writer, poet, performer playwright, artist and broadcaster Lemn Sissay, who will read from his work and, together with actor Anthony Taylor, from the writings of detainee and novelist Behrouz Boochani.

Boochani will speak via a live Skype link from Manus Island off the coast of Australia where he is currently being detained indefinitely.

The event will take place against the backdrop of an exhibition of images by award-winning photographer Hoda Afshar and in the context of the London premiere of an original composition by Simon Le Boggit.

Tickets are free, but booking is required. We ask that waged attendees consider making a donation on the door to The Renewal Programme, a registered charity working closely with the refugee community in Newham and beyond.
