taking pArt – A COLLABORATION BETWEEN COUNTERPOINTS ARTS AND ART REFUGE

Counterpoints Arts and Art Refuge are delighted to announce a new 7 week online art project starting during Refugee Week on Thursday June 17th, 1-2.30pm on Zoom and then weekly at this time (with a possibility to continue in September). Through a series of participatory art workshops we welcome you to take part in playful art-making activities & games around The Community Table.

This project is a response to requests from our networks for a regular, safe, welcoming art making space for creativity and wellbeing.

For a mixed group of people aged 18 and over with lived experience as refugees, people seeking asylum, support workers, foster-carers, friends, neighbours, charity workers – all welcome. We also invite artists & cultural workers who would like to experience ‘making’ with others and as part of an Art Refuge series of workshops.

We will use easily accessible materials and domestic objects, and groups are welcome to join together. You can use a computer or a phone to join in.

The workshops will be led by Art Refuge with guest artists from Counterpoints Arts. For further information and/or the Zoom link please email Dijana Rakovic, Counterpoints’ Producer – dijana@counterpointsarts.org.uk with taking pArt in the subject line.

Art Refuge uses socially engaged art and art therapy to support the mental health and wellbeing of people displaced due to conflict, persecution and poverty, in the UK and internationally, alongside training, education, exhibitions and research. Its freelance team of artists and art therapists includes a growing number of artists with lived experience as refugees.
