Mark Isaacs Author Visit

September 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Mark is a writer, author, researcher and community worker. He tells stories of conflict and displacement, using his writing, his photography and his community work to connect people with issues all over the world, and to encourage and facilitate action.

Mark has also written The Undesirables: Inside Nauru (2014) and Nauru Burning (2016). In 2016, he conducted an investigation into deportations to Afghanistan with the Edmund Rice Centre. The published report, titled ‘Responsibility to Protect’, paved the way for Mark’s later writings in Afghanistan.

THE KABUL PEACE HOUSE: A story of peace in a land of unending war.  

This is a story of hope and resilience in Afghanistan, a country constantly under siege from within and without.  Mark takes us on a journey to the streets of Kabul, where day-to-day life involves terror and extreme danger, and lives alongside these inspirational and courageous young people in ‘The Community’. Mark reveals their personal stories of trauma and loss that ultimately lead them to defy the risks and stand up to demand peace, a seemingly impossible dream. He witnesses their acts of non-violent protest, their small steps in making life better, their setbacks and struggles, but mostly their bravery and hope for a future that shines with peace.
