In Search of Safety
Community Conversations

Discover why people seek asylum, understand the situations they face, and meet those who’ve experienced it themselves.
The Rotary Club of Gawler has organised an event for people in the community wanting to learn more about the situation faced by people seeking asylum in Australia.
For this event, we are partnering with Red Cross to promote peace and understanding through a Community Conversation event.
 
Through informative and engaging presentations and conversations,  people will hear real-life stories from people with direct and first-hand experience as refugees and asylum seekers in Australia.
 
‘In Search of Safety’ aims to improve public understanding of asylum seekers and refugees and help dispel the many myths and misunderstandings surrounding migration.
 
"Empathy is an important ingredient in the fabric of a healthy society. In Search of Safety assists in giving people the capacity to share and recognise emotions and issues experienced by asylum seekers and refugees, possibly assisting in creating a more loving, flexible and understanding society in general." - Carsten Ostergaard Pedersen, In Search of Safety volunteer presenter
