This chapter centres on the creative ways refugee communities in the UK have survived and managed to construct lives for themselves in host countries. It is also concerned with the representation of asylum seekers and refugees in the mainstream media and the research that has occurred in documenting this. The discussion focuses on two examples: the workshop organised as part of Making the Connections and the work of Somali Afro European Media Project (SAEMP), an online community television station based in Leicester.

Keywords:   refugee communities, survival, constructing lives, host countries, representation, mainstream media, Making the Connections, SAEMP
