This video is narrated by Swansea artist Mary Hayman who works on Community Arts projects with the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery in Wales, UK. Mary describes how this wonderful project came about and brought together people across social and ethnic boundaries to co-create banners to celebrate the many people in Swansea who work together to promote refugee rights, solidarity and care. We pay tribute to Mary’s community arts work on #IWD as she continues to #ChooseToChallenge racism and forge solidarity through art.
