Meet The Forum: Maja

Volunteer -DramaTeacher

I am a theatre director in London. In addition to directing professional actors, I enjoy taking theatre into the community through drama workshops with Most Mira, a Bosnian youth arts festival, and at The Forum.

Where do you live now? Where have you lived before?
I live in London now and lived in Belgrade in the past.

Why are you interested in migration?
Migration is the movement of HUMANS and that is often lost when it comes to talking about immigrants.

What do you do at The Forum?
I run Drama workshops. I came to volunteer with MRCF through contacts and colleagues I know in other organisations. What do you think is unique about MRCF? I think that MRCF is a place where people can get not only legal help and advice but they can also get training and skills. It is also a place where they can meet and talk, exchange experiences, creatively express themselves and gain confidence through art forms. This kind of place is rare in the world.

What issues do you think are most important to migrants in London?
Legality (permission to stay, work, freedom to move and be recognised as an existing, visible part of society), integration (language, training, education), loneliness and isolation.

What are you looking forward to in the next year?
Unknown happenings.
