Mathilda started the project ‘Conversations From Calais’. It aims to re-humanise the refugee crisis by using public space to share conversations volunteers have had with migrants met in Calais. It is a way of bearing witness and of documenting the stories of those who are so often considered as voiceless. How can we capture the diversity of these experiences and avoid creating new stereotypes of refugees as heroic figures or hopeless victims?
