Summary
"With a heavy heart and bearing artistic gifts, Kate Evans draws the faces of refugees coming from Syria, Africa, and elsewhere to "The Jungle," a makeshift camp in Calais, France, and in doing so Evans captures the refugees' full humanity, intelligence, and suffering as they search for family, home, and dignity. An antidote to the anti-immigrant populism that is raging across the world, Threads is the real story that puts a human face on a very topical news item. We learn of these families' and individuals' struggles at the hands of police, racist gangs, and human traffickers. We learn of their struggle for food, for blankets, and bread. Much to our dismay, the French police have arbitrary rules like no dry bedding or bread allowed in the camps. The cruelty and immense wave of suffering Evans sees and captures in her art appears to be crushing her but like the generous soul she is, Evans goes deeper and deeper into the camps and finds people opening up and sharing their stories. The art work is excellent, the stories are heart-breaking. This is a must-read for people wanting a human dimension on a policy wonk "current event." Highly recommended."--Amazon.com
Summary
"In the French port town of Calais, famous for its historic lace industry, a city within a city arose. This new town, known as the Jungle, was home to thousands of refugees, mainly from the Middle East and Africa, all hoping, somehow, to get to the UK. Into this squalid shantytown of shipping containers and tents, full of rats and trash and devoid of toilets and safety, the artist Kate Evans brought a sketchbook and an open mind."--Provided by the publisher
