The theme of this year’s Refugee Week is ‘we cannot walk alone’; a phrase taken from Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream speech. The idea that the fight for freedom is not an individual one, but a collective one, means that solidarity is essential in making lasting change. Until everyone is free, no one is free. This interdependence has become increasingly visible during the pandemic, and is no longer an abstract idea but a stark, lived reality. This is especially true for refugee and asylum seeking communities, for whom networks of solidarity are essential to survival. This room documents what it means to stand in solidarity. As put by the organisers of Refugee Week, this is part of developing a ‘bold, collective act of reaching out; a space for us all to listen, to exchange and connect. To find out what we can learn from each other, and what we can build together’.
