Welcoming People Seeking Asylum: Community Responses to Government Policies
Those who came to Australia by boat to seek asylum continue to endure government policies that effectively punish them for their mode of arrival. As John Akomfrah's exhibition so powerfully evokes, coming by sea to find a life of safety is perilous and terrifying, and the Australian government perpetuates this trauma through its responses to those who arrived by boat. This talk will explore community responses, such as the Seeking Refuge WA project, that challenge political attempts to dehumanise, punish and divide.
