Malaysia - Refugee and Migrant Rights
In August 2017, Bond Street Theatre is initiating a project in Malaysia for refugee and migrant populations. Bond Street will partner with Asylum Access Malaysia, a respected advocate on the international stage for refugee legal rights, as well as multiple local organizations and community groups. We will work with Asylum Access and their local partners to develop theatre-based tools to initiate rights-based discussions among refugee groups in the Klang Valley. We are grateful to Rational Games Inc. for making this project possible.
