About Refugees, By Refugees

The 1000 Dreams Storytellers

Forty refugee storytellers, from diverse backgrounds and living all over Europe, photographed and interviewed the people featured on this website.

Each storyteller completed an intensive storytelling training program with Witness Change. They received mentorship from Robin Hammond and the Witness Change team as they interviewed and made portraits of other refugees. As part of the project all storytellers received photography equipment. The storytellers are the primary beneficiaries of sales to publications, print sales and exhibition fees. This process ensures the storytellers are supported through their participation in the campaign and have the ability to author the stories of their communities – stories about refugees, by refugees.
