Freedom Feast

In June 2018 I was thrilled to photograph the long table Freedom Feast celebrating the richness and diversity of our community. The Freedom Feast is the major activity in this years' celebration of Ref-YOU-gee Week: a long table sit down shared community meal experience with a variety of live entertainment - a melding of story sharing, curated discussions and community performance - all exploring different aspects of the refugee experience around the theme of freedom. It was a night of family and community, watching teenage girls dancing with their dads to traditional music had me crying behind my camera.
