We run events throughout the year, directed at a variety of audiences – from the Sudanese community to decision-makers, with the aim of raising awareness about human rights abuses in Sudan and the plight of those who make it to the UK.
We find film a great educational and inspirational tool, and have arranged screenings of films like Watchers of the Sky, or The Heart of Nuba. We also think creatively about how to engage people in new ways, for instance using our drawings to powerful effect, arranging for attendees to use virtual reality headsets to get a sense of life in Sudan, organising for people on the ground to Skype in and speak directly to audiences, using photography, asking individuals to provide testimony where appropriate, or having actors read aloud powerful pieces of testimony where individuals are unable to do this themselves. We are always thinking of new ways to bring the issues to life and welcome suggestions
We also ourselves attend events and conferences on Sudan or relevant topics, providing a strong showing of support to counteract the sometimes dangerous denials of Sudanese Embassy officials who attend.
