It will take place digitally over two days: 30th March, 5-7pm and 31st March, 5-8pm (UK time).We will have a number of workshops and talks throughout the sessions centered around our spotlighted campaign: Lift The Ban. Lift the Ban is a coalition campaign, supported by Student Action for refugees alongside over 230 organisations. At KCL STAR, we are passionate about campaigning for the right to work for all asylum seekers. Therefore, we have invited industry professionals from many different backgrounds, including politics, art, theatre, literature, and medicine to join us in exploring this matter further through talks and workshops. We will also be hosting a debate in collaboration with the Lib Dem Society!Get a ticket HERE. Postcard 1 Postcard 2Art by: Anna Virabyan Volunteering Opportunities Please note that all volunteers must go through our training before they could start volunteers. Contact the officers who are in charge of the programme for training and more information.1.
