Refugee Arts

We are in the early stages of research and development for our upcoming Refugee Arts project.

During June and July 2017 Phakama have been to Athens, to create links with possible partners by running workshops and discussions. We have been looking into how Phakama and our Greek partners can work together to create a sustainable project that reacts to a genuine need felt by refugees and locals in Athens and London, using the creative arts as a tool to bring together communities.

Queen Mary’s Centre for Public Engagement awarded us a small grant which has made it possible for us to take two members of our Youth Board, Grace and Django, who along with an associate artist Kate Beales, will run a Phakama storytelling workshop to our partners in Athens as part of our project planning.
