The World is for Everyone, with Nottingham refugee women

Sunday, 8th March, 2020

Five Leaves Bookshop*
14a Long Row, Nottingham, NG1 2DH

Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day with Nottingham Refugee Forum Women’s Group.

Members of the group will read from their Palewell Press collection, The World is for Everyone

The writing in this anthology is by members of PAMOJA Women Together – a group of refugee, asylum-seeking and irregular migrant women from many countries, faiths and backgrounds. PAMOJA means ‘together’ and ‘inclusive’ in Swahili. The World is for Everyone represents the voices, creative contributions and insights – written and spoken – of the PAMOJA Women Together Group, as these emerged through projects organized as part of Changing Wor(l)ds at Nottingham Trent University.  As well as poems, stories and photographs, there are recipes handed down from mother to daughter, carried across the world and recreated in the UK. These women speak of courage needed, pain overcome, puzzlement, patience, struggle, rejection and the ultimate triumph of the spirit.

Admission – free for refugees and asylum seekers, £4.00 (£2.00 students) for others, with all proceeds to Nottingham Refugee Forum, earmarked for refugee women.  Light refreshments provided.
