RSVP NOW! 19th January: ‘Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Detention But Were Too Afraid To Ask’ feat. The Claim


Join us on the 19th January for an evening of ‘Everything You’ve Always Wanted To Know About Detention But Were Too Afraid to Ask’ with the Freed Voices group, followed by a great new play about narrative-making around seeking asylum in this country, called The Claim.

Freed Voices are a group of experts-by-experience who have lost over 20 years of their lives to immigration detention in the UK. They are dedicated to speaking out and campaigning for an end to indefinite detention in this country. This participatory workshop is an opportunity to better understand the everyday realities of detention and to explore the reasons why (and means as to how) the current system needs to change, with those who have experienced it first-hand. Please email to reserve your free place at the session. Travel for asylum seekers will be reimbursed.

The Claim is a new play written by Tim Cowbury which offers an acerbic, bold and often amusing take on asylum interviews, Home Office decision-making and the narratives that dominate and frame debate around migration in this country. You can book your tickets to the show, here.
