We were proud to be a festival partner for the 2019 Queen’s Park Book Festival, an annual celebration of literature in the heart of our local community.
Our first event was with the award-winning novelist and author of ‘The Ungrateful Refugee’ Dina Nayeri, in conversation with barrister, author and acclaimed journalist Jennifer Nadel. The discussion focused on Dina’s work and her own experience as a refugee.
Our second event was a comedy show called ‘No Direction Home’, with four fantastic performers: Nour-Ani Sisserian, Usman Khalid, Majid Adin, and Araskh Farahani. The renowned actor Jason Isaacs also kindly opened this event. The ‘No Direction Home’ stand-up programme is run by Counterpoints Arts to show a unique new course for refugees and migrants.
