Brainchild of Dr. Roghieh Dehghan Zaklaki, a UCL researcher and Wellcome Trust Research Fellow, as part of her wider research, this creative engagement brought together different groups of Iranian refugees from the UK for sets of different creative workshops, during which the participants were encouraged to creatively explore and express the themes of migration and solidarity and the various other themes deriving from these. 

The project was a collaboration between Dr. Dehghan, the artists Maryam Hashemi, Lola Awada, Nasrin Parvaz and Majid Adin, and we also have the pleasure of working with Public Engagement Expert and Researcher Dr. Sohail Jannesari.

The engagement's culmination is a Free Public Exhibition at the Oxo Tower Wharf Gallery in London between March 27th and 31st, 2024.
