This week Cheryl Akle is joined by award-winning artist Ben Quilty to discuss his heartbreaking and awe-inspiring collection of drawings by Syrian children – Home. The collection stands as a testament to the resilience of a generation of survivors whose childhood has been shaped by the worst war of our century. Together they discuss the power of art to enact change and help others.
