#Turning18

‘Turning 18’, is a series of audio stories put together to mark 18 years of work of The Refugee Council’s Children’s Section. The stories in this collection are written and read by refugees inspired by the theme ‘turning 18’, with introductions by Zoë Wanamaker, Vivienne Westwood, Grayson Perry, and Peter Tatchell.

Contributors include those who have fled conflict, young people who were trafficked to the UK as children, and those escaping persecution over political beliefs, or sexual orientation. They originate from Uganda, Afghanistan, Jamaica, South America, Nigeria, Iran, and Somalia. They range from purposefully crafted vignettes, to very simply written short recollections and explore themes of identity, coming-of-age, freedom and tyranny, and ideas around youth and legal status (and what it means to live without it).
