Reflecting on the Refugee Crisis.

 

A communal multidisciplinary project also involving The School of Creative Art, Glyndwr University, Media Art and Design in Hasselt, Technological Educational Institute in Athens and Aalto University in Helsinki.

 

" The best way to learn is by studying together and learning from each other. When we initiated this international co-operative project, we had concerns common to Europeans in mind; the rapidly changing landscape in societies, politics and people's attitudes.. Students need to be able to have a broad understanding in order to communicate visually and make information readable to tell stories, to provide dialogue between people. Students designed and worked both individually and in teams."
