On Tuesday, July 7 at 18:00Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network (TENet-Gr), in the context of the 9th Antiracist Festival of Social Solidarity in Kozani, hosted an online Presentation of the Quarantine Monologues project (via a Zoom meeting).

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 three 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.

After the creative writing workshops end, the texts are included in a special publication in Greek and English.

The methodology and practice of working with the teenager refuges was showcased, texts created during the writing workshops were read and personal experiences from this period were shared.
