The Women and Memory Forum based in Cairo aims to re-read Arab tradition and cultural history in order to promote a society based on justice and equal opportunities for men and women. One of the ways the forum works is through public story telling performances. Jane Gabriel has been in Cairo to meet the writers and actors.
I'm the Story was performed in the Wekkalat el-Goury Theatre, Cairo in June 2008.
The extracts heard in this podcast were performed by Hadia Hasb-Allah, Mona Ibrahim and Mounira Soliman.
Most countries closed their borders over the pandemic, but for asylum seekers, deportation continued all over the world. More and more often, they are returned to the same life-threatening conditions that they fled.
To mark World Refugee Day on 20 June, and the launch of our multimedia project 'Parallel Journeys', join us as we explore returns without reintegration.
Speakers to be announced soon.
