The Journey – Across Borders x The Worldwide Tribe (Podcast Launch Party)





Arts and Culture, Campaigning or awareness-raising, Migration Matters

Join us on 20th June for a special party - online and in-person - on World Refugee Day to mark the release of a new season from The Asylum Speakers: The Podcast.

Since its launch in 2019, Asylum Speakers: The Podcast has amplified the stories of people impacted by migration.

For Season 7, launching on World Refugee Day 2022, the podcast has gone on a journey. Over six episodes we've followed the common routes taken by refugees and asylum seekers in order to find safety. Each episode features both displaced communities and local people we meet along the way. We explore a series of themes, answering common questions about migration, and raising awareness about the biggest humanitarian crisis of our time.

This event is hosted in collaboration with the Across Borders, a Comic Relief programme supporting 19 civil society organisations and partnerships that are working to develop routes to safety for refugees. Over 3+ years, the cohort is working in direct service delivery at a grassroots level, advocating for changes to policy and legislation, and aiming to shift the general public attitudes towards migration.
