POETRY AS AN ANTIDOTE

There are so many ways in which refugees’ stories have been told. From video games tracing their journeys towards “refuge,” to art that attempts to package their experiences into tangible, material objects, displaced people have continued to find new ways to articulate their traumas and produce creative material out of it that ends up carrying an unparalleled quality of precarity and ingenuity. One particular form that refugees have been using for decades as a platform for cathartic creative expression, is poetry.
