Borders are first imagined and then built. What we think borders can do is shaped by the stories we tell. What is your border story?
Original Event Date: Dec 5, 2020 via Zoom
Description: This free webinar begins with a virtual screening of Erin Goheen Glanville’s Borderstory, a Worn Words short documentary and dialogue-opener about what the word ‘border’ means to us. Following the film, cross-sector experts will engage questions as part of a panel discussion on the word ‘border’ and give concrete suggestions for policy and law. Participants are invited to ask honest questions and participate in dialogue based on personal experience and collective curiosity. As global and country citizens, we’ll imagine incremental ways our idea of ‘border” can increasingly become more human-centred and benefit the safety needs of people seeking refuge while honouring the practical need for boundaries.
