This event is co-organised by the ACU and the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, as part of the ACU Summer School 2020: The Migration Generation? Climate, youth and refugees.
How can the arts influence narratives and public perceptions of migration? How can young migrants be supported and encouraged to create their own narratives and share their own stories? Leading Ghanaian author, Nii Ayikwei Parkes, will be discussing these topics as well as sharing insights from his career as a writer, educator and public speaker. He will be interviewed by Awo Ablo, the Executive Director of External Relations at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.
