Every boat is the first boat

We  thank all the named and unnamed refugee writers and artists cited in this case study.  In some instances  they preferred to remain anonymous for their own safety, or used pseudonyms. For the same reason, images from detention were often circulated without attribution via activist groups. We have reproduced these in the interest of relaying, amplifying and documenting campaigns against detention, and included the names of the organisations which originally circulated them. Deathscapes researchers have made every effort to seek the permission of refugee artists whose work is reproduced on the site. As their circumstances change, artists may wish to have their own names associated with their images, or to remove them. In these instances, please contact us at deathscapes@curtin.edu.au or S.Perera@curtin.edu.au. 

This case study was collectively authored by the Australian hub of the Deathscapes project: Michelle Bui, Suvendrini Perera, Joseph Pugliese, Ayman Qwaider and Charandev Singh.
