What We Carry With Us: A Refugee Storylab

ABOUT

What We Carry With Us: A Refugee Storylab

Imagine you have an hour to gather your belongings and flee. What would you prize most in the course of your escape, and in your quest to find a new home?

In an effort to better understand and respond to the worst refugee crisis since the 1940s, Citizen Film and the University of California Berkeley’s Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life are immersed in an ongoing curatorial initiative, including public exhibitions and a series of “show and tell” sessions that engage students and the public in reflection and dialogue.

Young refugee storytellers curate their own prized possessions. Then, they collaborate with a team of professional curators, digital artists and peers, UC Berkeley students, to share and discuss their most meaningful objects in short films and immersive multimedia installations .
