I have been a contributor and participant at the Seventh Annual conference: “Educational Challenges in Refugee Population” 15 – 16 May 2013 in Beirut, Lebanon. The conference has been arranged by The National Institution of Social Care and Vocational Training in collaboration with its Family Guidance Centres and NORWAC.
On this trip I met Amal, Marwa, Layla and Salam and their two leaders for the very first time, and we had a very pleasant meeting at the Embroidery Centre close to The Refugee camp of Shatila. We who are lecturer at The Department of Art and Design, Oslo and Akershus University College (OAUC) are looking forward to meet our new studentfriends on this blog: Art and Craft crossing boarders.
