This educational guide is a companion piece to the videos “One Family” (2002) and “Picture a Story” (2003), which were produced, directed and edited by refugee youth participants of Global Action Project’s Documentary Project for Refugee Youth. The Documentary Project was started by Raeshma Razvi in October 2001 with a core group of twelve refugees resettling in New York City. The group?s participants (ages 14-17) originally come from Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Burundi and Serbia. The Project uses documentary-style art and research (video, writing, photography, and multi-media) to bring together displaced youth, artists, and activists to creatively build community.
