Weekend Passport: Supporting Refugees Locally

How can we support and help refugees in our neighborhoods? How can artists and the humanities address the humanitarian crisis and affect change? These are the questions artists, scholars, faculty and students hope to answer through Northwestern University’s #WithRefugees event. 

Joining us to talk about this event are Galya Benarieh Ruffer, founding director of the Center for Forced Migration Studies at the Buffett Institute for Global Studies at Northwestern University and filmmaker Emadeddin Tayefeh, filmmaker and School of Communication/Mellon refugee artist in residence.

Plus, Nari Safavi shares a few more global picks you don’t want to miss this weekend.
