The workshop ran in collaboration with our NGO partners, Integrating Ireland and the Refugee Information Service, enabling 9 storytellers to engage in a collaborative process that integrated storytelling, group and individual reflection, creative writing, photography, and the use of multi-media technologies.

The stories and perspectives produced in this workshop speak to a variety of issues effecting asylum seekers and families who have had or are currently living in the direct provision system. These subjective accounts are not intended to be representative ‘asylum’ stories but instead offer important subjective insights on what it means to live everyday and over time in the ‘direct provision’ system.

The Living in Direct Provision digital storytelling workshop took place over a 6-month period (September 2008 – February 2009) and each participant produced a 3-5 min story about their own experiences as asylum seekers and refugees.
