Swarthmore College

Friends, Peace, and Sanctuary


Synthesizing years of information into meaningful (and award-winning) documentation.

Swarthmore College had a project underway — Friends, Peace, and Sanctuary — which brought together book artists and members of Philadelphia’s Iraqi and Syrian refugee communities to create artists’ books that expressed personal narratives of displacement, immigration, and sanctuary.  Two years into the project, after ongoing community workshops which garnered so much participation, Swarthmore had collected heaps of information, photos and testimonials about what this project was accomplishing.  They needed documentation that would share the spirit of the events, and the impact they were having — for the community, the artists, the Pew, and prosperity!
