Over 82.4 million people have been displaced around the world since 2020. The PumpHouse’s “Refugees Welcome: Refuge Canada Speaker Series,” invites residents to listen to people who have experienced firsthand what it is to be a refugee. The events also encourage people to participate through poetry, art and community discussion to deepen their understanding of the global refugee crisis with a Kingston focus. These free events complement the exhibition, Refuge Canada, on view now at the PumpHouse until November 20, 2021.
