The asylum seeking youth often voyage emotionally through the many wounds they receive along the way. Having to endure the horrors of war and violence, they are often haunted by the memories of neglected traumatic childhoods. This presentation is based on a PhD field work period between 2015 and 2016 in Istanbul Turkey and is co-created together with the youth from Afghanistan, Somalia, DRC, Iran and Syria residing at a state care shelter for unaccompanied minor asylum seekers. Among them, Abdi Deeq becomes the interlocutor, translator and the co-ethnographer of the research, as we conducted participatory radio shows and photography workshops together. Thus, the many new metaphors of hybrid realities produced during the workshops in videos, audio recordings, photographic images and in their elicitations, provided a deep encounter and recognition into their legacies of pain, suffering and triumph in ways that transformed present reality and representation, as the youth longed, searched and learnt to be freed.
