Presenting opportunities for thought and insight into what people leave behind when they are forced to leave their country or family, the experiences of coming of age in a new place with the wish to build a better life. The thematic framework allows for creative exploration within the lessons into the way our identities and perspectives shape how we are and how we respond to others.
