For the only proper response to the refugee crisis now facing Europe (and the rest of the world) is action. In her latest graphic novel, Threads: From the Refugee Crisis, British-based cartoonist, artist, activist, and author Kate Evans faces the refugee crisis head on; reporting accounts of those marginalized and unwelcome in today’s EU with heartbreaking clarity. The book’s compassionate and moving dispatches from the camps that Evans visited in Calais, France, combine reportage and art to bring attention to the squalid conditions faced by people in search of a place to belong.
On Friday, September 29th, at 7:30 in UBC’s Telus Studio Theatre, Evans will read excerpts from her graphic novel accompanied by projections of panels from the book, and atmospheric live music by percussionist Hamin Honari.
