This educational tool explores themes of belonging, identity, discrimination and culture in a hands-on experiential way.
While the goal of Refugee Journeys is for players to move from the “start” to the “finish,” the real purpose of the game is to establish a space for critical conversations about refugee experiences, integration, and the intersectionality of identity. To this end, after every experience card is played, players choose a discussion question from options printed on the board to talk about as a group. The discussion questions cover topics related to identity, injustice, policy, and allow for players to share their personal experiences with the topic.
