The virtual GOAL Global Home From Home event welcomed a selection of fantastic guests and guest speakers, including a keynote speech from former President of Ireland Mary Robinson.
“Turkey is the world’s biggest refugee host nation, with 3.7 million registered Syrians in the country, and a population that keeps growing. Approximately 500,000 Syrian children have been born in Turkey since the start of the Syrian conflict ten years ago.”
The event was supported with dynamic interactive content including a photo exhibition featuring a collection of 50 photos depicting the lives of Syrian refugees in Turkey. The 3D exhibition allowed visitors to take in the photos in a gallery like manner and was a fantastic platform to bring the story behind the images to life.
An beautifully and sensitively made documentary captured the lives of Syrian families is a hard hitting insight into the challenges refugees face on a daily basis but also brings about the theme of hope as they strive for opportunities away from the conflict of their homeland. You can find the photo exhibition and documentary here.
All in all, as with all of our events we learned a lot and met some amazing people along the way with some even more amazing stories to tell.
