Event description: 

Too often has the broad construct of ‘The Refugee ’ been demonized and stigmatized in public discourse and media narratives. Hidden behind the already invisibilized are the refugee women, underrepresented in all spheres of life and largely absent as an independent voice in the media. But we all have many stories within us. And while traditionally only some hold the power to tell these stories, Project Reclaim puts the camera in their hands, and makes them the teller of their own stories.
