Untold. Unheard. Vulnerable. Refugees.
Vulnerable Groups – Gilgamesh Project
The Gilgamesh project aims to make the ‘untold’, mainly ignored experiences of minority refugee populations visible, and illustrate how the fear of extinction is embedded in the collective narratives of these groups and expressed in different artistic forms.
The project is built on three main activities (workshop, exhibition, documentary), and links the stories of vulnerable refugees with the epic of Gilgamesh, where Gilgamesh – either voluntarily or forcibly – starts a journey for finding the immortal life by crossing the river of death.
Vulnerable Groups is co-financed by the Swedish Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
