    Justice Through the Arts School Project 2019

    Justice Through the Arts Schools Project 2019 is a project initiated by the Edmund Rice Centre for Justice and Community Education. It is to demonstrate how the arts can be a powerful way to raise awareness about issues of social justice, human rights and eco justice and help build the skills and capacity for change.

    The vision is that in 2020 the Edmund Rice Centre will host a Justice Through the Arts Schools Event. At this event schools who
    have participated in 2019 will repeat their performances/presentations. The goal is that the students will be teaching one another.

    Report Launch & Panel: Settlement Experience of Syrian and Iraqi Refugees: Opportunities, Challenges and the Way Forward

    Join the Edmund Rice Centre for the launch of a new report on the settlement experiences of Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Australia.

    About the Report
    The purpose of the study is to learn about the gap between what is currently provided by way of settlement support and what is needed to achieve positive wellbeing outcomes for refugees. The study aims to enhance policy development, settlement service provision and consequently the settlement experience of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, and to foster a better understanding of these new arrivals living in Australia. The report includes concrete recommendations for further investigation and policy improvement in refugee settlement. It is hoped that these recommendations will be used to improve services to refugees, and to inform relevant stakeholders, including Government, the community sector and the wider community.

    Please note that the report launch will also include a brief panel and Q&A discussion. Networking, drinks and light refreshments follow the discussion.
