Taking the Stage 2022 - EchoBy Subika Anwar Khan
Can we really put things right in the world when we’re destined to repeat historical tragedies? And how much power do we really have from the comfort of our homes. Echo examines the desperate desire to put things right in a time of extreme social unrest. Situated in the UK, one woman makes it her mission to make changes, thousands of miles away.
