Drawn Across Borders: Live Q&A with artist George Butler
Friday 9 July, 1-2pm
Live via Zoom.
George Butler will be joining us live via Zoom to talk about his work and new book Drawn Across Borders: True Stories of Migration – a collection of vivid and powerful stories drawn on the front lines of migration.
George is an award-winning artist specializing in current affairs and travel. His work has been published by The Times, BBC, New York Times, The Guardian, CNN and more, and has been displayed in the V&A Museum. His pen, ink and watercolour drawings are made in situ, and he has reported on a range of conflicts and crises in countries including Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Myanmar. In 2014 George and three friends founded the Hands Up Foundation, which promotes awareness of the ongoing war in Syria and supports salaries of professionals in the country.
This event is FREE and open to anyone and recommended for ages 14 – 25.
