Kenan students bring refugee stories to life with audiovisual exhibit

Inspired by their experiences through programming at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, two undergraduates have created a new art exhibit displayed in the Keohane-Kenan Gallery in West Duke Building.

The audiovisual exhibit was produced by undergraduates Lily Doron and Olivia Johnson, who spent six weeks traveling the Balkan route from Lesvos, Greece to Berlin, Germany to more fully understand the lived experiences of displaced people in transit. Narratives from refugees fleeing countries like Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan are included.

The exhibit is open to the public during regular business hours. While viewing the gallery, guests are encouraged to listen to stories told by refugees.

Work by Doron and Johnson is supported by the Kenan Refugee Project.
