Desperate Journeys Trip

On Monday 2 July our Knole Interact and Duke of Edinburgh students were kindly invited by Sevenoaks School to attend an event titled 'Desperate Journeys' produced by Empathy Action.  The students took part in the live interactive experience delivered within a maze-like set with cast members set on the grounds of Sevenoaks School.  The experience explored the global refugee crisis by tracking the journey of a family forced from their home in a war torn country and was based upon case studies and first hand accounts.  The students were encouraged to wear the shoes of a refugee and had to make harrowing decisions and experienced betrayal.  It really was an amazing experience for the students and has deepened their understanding of the refugee crisis and are now aware how we can all support and take action.
