A bird flying, a butterfly perched on a flower and hills overlooking the horizons. That’s a summary of Juliana Warija’s art piece. She is one of the refugees showcasing their creativity through an art exhibition dubbed ‘Storytelling through Art’ at Design Hub, as part of events to mark World Refugee Day on June 21.
Warija, a 10-year-old refugee from South Sudan, welcomes visitors to her exhibition corner with a smile that illuminates innocence before going ahead to explain to them what her piece is all about.
