ABOUT

What We Carry With Us: A Refugee Storylab

Young refugee storytellers curate their own prized possessions. Then, they collaborate with a team of digital artists and documentarians on a series of “show and tell” multimedia events. For example, a shipping container is outfitted with luminous LED screens showcasing“video ads” for refugees’ “memory objects.” Inside the shipping containers, short documentaries are shown, followed by immersive video chats.
