Refugee Camp in My Neighbourhood is a simulated refugee camp set up for a few weeks each year in the grounds of the Auburn Centre for Community. Tour guides, who are former refugees or asylum seekers, guide participants through the interactive exhibition. Throughout the tour you’ll discover the stories and experiences of many local residents as you experience what it’s like to flee your country and try to find safety.
In 2017, tours will be held from Monday 31 July to Friday 11 August.
