Synopsis

'A beautiful, deeply affecting and powerful marriage between art and activism' - Khaled Hosseini, bestselling author of The Kite Runner



Founded in 2018, Conversations from Calais is a global art movement which documents the conversations between volunteers in the Calais 'Jungle' and refugees in poster form. Pasted on our city walls, these purely typographic posters amplify marginalised voices in human moments and bear witness to those that are disenfranchised. Their aim is to rehumanize and bear witness to the refugee crisis and inspire social change.



Capturing the spirit of the movement, Conversations from Calais, the book, features posters and quotes alongside a handful of short, carefully curated essays, sharing the intimate, sad, funny, familiar and unfamiliar stories of the unseen.
