Homelands: The Path Within

June 10 @ 10:00 am - August 3 @ 5:00 pm

An intimate and powerful showcase of visual arts, live performances, and music by established and early career artists, highlighting their lived experiences – for Refugee Week.

SSI Arts and Culture Program hosts an annual tour dedicated to elevating the voices and experiences of artists through art, music, poetry, and more. We aim to raise awareness and understanding of their live stories.

This year’s program will run during Refugee Week from 17 June – 1 July 2024, with stops in Brisbane, Coffs Harbour and Sydney.

The tour features ‘The Path Within’, a visual arts exhibition showcasing multimedia, photography, painting, digital art, and workshops in collaboration with CuriousWorks artists Ali Rizvani (Iran), Khishkok Abdo (Kurdistan), Emmanuel Asante (Ghana), and Shiva Dadvar (Iran).

The program concludes with a live collaborative performance during events in Brisbane and Coffs Harbour, where Australian Poetry Slam Champion Huda The Goddess and multi-instrumentalist Cieavash Arean join forces to explore childhood memories, journeys of exile and haven, and the pain that underlines it all.
