Check out the video of Share The Word Project in Nakivale Refugee Settlement on youtube! (sous-titres en français disponibles)
I spent 5 weeks in Uganda, painting in a refugee settlement which is home to 100 000 refugees who mainly come from the DR Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea.
I painted in a predominantly Congolese neighbourhood, with a community who mainly come from the Eastern Congolese regions of North Kivu and South Kivu. They had fled violences that have been taken place for years with different milicia raiding villages and taking control of gold, diamond and coltan mines.
Just arrived in Iraq, in the region of Kurdistan. I’ll be working here in Kawergosk refugee camp, painting the words that Kurdish-Syrian families will want to share!
