Quarantine Monologues – Creative writing workshops
Online, April&May 2020
In April and May 2020, twenty four (24) teenager refugees (boys and girls) with different backgrounds and origins such as Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran Pakistani Balochistan, citizens of Syria, Cameroon and Benin, Kurds from Syria and Somalians, participated in 15 online creative writing workshops facilitated by four Greek writers.
The creative writing workshops provided a forum to teenager refugees who live in various facilities and regions of the country to voice their thoughts and emotions while the coronavirus quarantine was still in place.
On Monday 1/6/2020, the participants, the workshop facilitators, the interpreters and all "contacts", together with representatives of the collaborating partners met online for an evaluation and celebration of the action.
Comments and impressions were heard, wishes were exchanged, dreams were shared.
