‘We live in the age of the refugee, the age of the exile.’ Ariel Dorfman
Peace charity Dove Tales, that uses art to oppose the arms trade and militarism, launches its first anthology A Kind of Stupidity featuring readings from local writers and a conversation between exiled Palestinian poet Iyad Hayaytleh, who grew up in a refugee camp in Syria, and award winning writer and journalist Jean Rafferty. Iyad found refuge in Glasgow in 2000.
