Hundreds of organisations, community groups and venues holding Refugee Week events have been plotted on a map of the UK for the first time.

From the Scottish Youth Theatre in Glasgow all the way down to St Steven’s Church in Devon, the map highlights the range and geographical reach of those who celebrated Refugee Week in 2014.

Counterpoints Arts volunteer Leila Seguin used the online tool History Pin to map 208 organisations and venues that held events last year.

Around 100,000 people attended over 300 Refugee Week events across England, Wales and Northern Ireland in 2014 – with many more happening in Scotland.
