How does it feel to be a castaway in the UK today?
Our latest book is based on interviews with refugees and asylum seekers living in Brighton and East Sussex, and the people who work with those communities. It tells their stories, in their own words. The Castaway Heritage Project was made possible through the generosity of the Heritage Lottery Fund and the support of those involved.
Voices of Asylum, Identity and Resistance. Refugee Radio Times is packed full of personal stories written by people who have sought refuge in the UK: people who have survived the worst that the world can throw at them and are now speaking out about those experiences. This book shares the voices of those who have battled torture and trauma in their journey to the UK, as well as those who are still on the road in the makeshift camps of Calais. It includes people who have just arrived, as well as those who have lived her for generations. Featuring Turkish Kurdish, Burmese, Afghan, Cameroonian, Iranian and Sudanese writers alongside UK journalists, the book covers everything from identity, religion and persecution through to detention, mental-health and resilience. It is an essential read for anyone who wants to learn the true story of asylum today.
