Biographical history

Kate Durham is a Melbourne artist who founded Spare Rooms for Refugees, a program to provide community accommodation and other support to refugees. In late 2001 Durham and others began exchanging letters with asylum seekers detained on Nauru by the Australian Government. Durham and BBC journalist Sarah Macdonald travelled to Nauru clandestinely in June 2002, becoming the first independent eyewitnesses to visit the refugee detention centre and interview its occupants.
