Before the dinner there will be a fundraising screening of the short film 'Departing: Arrivals' in the Gordon Cameron Lecture Theatre from 5:30-6:30 pm (here's the fb event). The documentary examines the lives and experiences of Syrian refugee families who have found asylum in the UK. The director, Hafsah Naib, will be there at the screening to discuss the film.
The event is a fundraiser for CUCRAG and Syria Relief, so a small donation of 50p/£1 is encouraged!
NOTE: A large part of the film is spoken in Arabic with English subtitles, so it may be difficult to watch for the visually impaired.
