Artist Statement
Road After Refuge hosts pieces produced by 17 refugee youth living in Georgia's Clarston community. Their work represents the strength and resilience needed to begin a new life in a new country. Each piece showcases the individual artist's experiences in their home countries they had to flee as well as the new adversities they face here in the United States. These pieces were produced as part of International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Atlanta's Summer Enrichment Camp.
International Rescue Committee
The International Rescue Committee provides opportunities for refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, survivors of torture, and other immigrants to thrive in America. For children and teenagers, the IRC in Atlanta coordinates with local school systems to provide enrichment programming for refugee youth. Through the Youth Futures Afterschool Program, which provides school-year tutoring and academic counseling as well as the Summer Enrichment Camp and Summer Internship programs that offer youth the opportunity to develop leadership skills through community engagement and career development activities, the IRC in Atlanta ensures the successful integration of refugee youth clients. More information about the IRC can be found at www.rescue.com
Center for Ethics Art Gallery

The Ethics & the Arts Initiative of the Center for Ethics presents insights about understanding ethics by inspiring conversations and motivating action through various forms of artistic expression. The visual arts installations range in medium. Artists are selected because their art engages controversial social issues in provocative ways. The works tell stories of human struggle and triumph. The Center for Ethics Art Gallery also allows visitors to engage with the artist through artist talks. Join us in interacting with these works of art to better grasp the meaning that informs their creation.
