Are We Home Yet? UN High Commissioner Visits Kenan
“What a great day,” Masoka beamed. Filippo Grandi, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and Durham Mayor Steve Schewel joined students and community members in the Kenan Refugee Project on a tour of Are We Home Yet? a photovoice exhibit curated by Sloan Talbot (Trinity ’19) and designed by Tommy Klug (Trinity ’18).
Newcomer youth from local high schools were thrilled to have the opportunity to share their work in the exhibit and experience resettling in Durham. The High Commissioner then received a private briefing both on Institute work with refugees locally and internationally as well as Kenan program director Tra Tran’s research on refugee mental health and art therapy interventions.
