Join us for a celebration of Refugee Week

Homelands - eric ngalle charles

Homelands by Eric Ngalle Charles


To celebrate the idea of healing, the theme of this year's Refugee Week, we are pleased to welcome Eric Ngalle Charles to talk about his collection of poems, Homelands.


Eric Ngalle Charles is a Cameroonian writer, poet, playwright, and human rights activist based in Wales. He received the Creative Wales Award 2017/2018 for his work on the topics of migration, trauma, and memory. In his autobiography I, Eric Ngalle: One Man’s Journey Crossing Continents from Africa to Europe (2019), he recounts his journey to Europe.


This will be followed by an animation created by Ida Mizaree, an MA Animation student, who received one of the USW Sanctuary Scholarships.

Finally, there will be a screening of the Speak to Me film, by Suzanne Phillips, with a discussion panel at the end. Led by USW English’s Barrie Llewelyn, Speak to Me is a project where English speakers and refugees got together to use language in a creative and expressive way.
