Listen: Ben Quilty's Home

Archibald Prize–winning artist Ben Quilty has assembled a heartbreaking and awe-inspiring collection of artworks by the most vulnerable victims of a brutal civil war into a book, Home: Drawings by Syrian Children. With a forward by Man Booker Prize winner Richard Flanagan, and proceeds from the book going towards World Vision programs in the Middle East, it is an extraordinary testament to the resilience of a generation of survivors. In this podcast, Ben talks with barrister and human rights and refugee advocate Julian Burnside QC about the book and his experiences collating it in refugee camps across Europe.
