Join us for a special craft session on Monday the 15thst June at 2.30 for #RefugeeWeek2020 inspired by this year's theme #imagine and the wonderful #giantdollshouse project.

To highlight the importance of #home and #community for all we're inviting you to make your own shoebox house. All you'll need is a box (it doesn't have to be a shoebox!), some bits and bobs to decorate your house, and most importantly your imagination!

In a time when many of us are spending a lot of time at home but apart from friends and family we can reflect on those who have had to flee their homes in search of a brighter future.

By exploring questions such as:

What does home mean to you? What makes you feel at home? How would it make you feel if you had to leave your home? What would you take with you if you could?

We hope to ignite a spirit of solidarity with those who are without a place to call home.

We can wait to build a home with you!
