For Refugee Week 2021 (14-20 June) we are calling on the creative people of Shropshire: Visual Artists, Crafters, Writers, Poets, Musicians & Actors to contribute something to our 'real-life' events (Covid-19 rules permitting) during the week and on this website that connect with this year’s national refugee week theme

 We can not Walk Alone and our response We Walk Together.

 

Call for Creative Contributions

Kindness compassion and solidarity are what this year’s Shropshire Refugee Week 2021 - ‘We Walk Together’ is about. Here in Shropshire, we want to spread the message loud and proud, in as many creative, bold, and beautiful ways that we can.

Maybe you already have a piece of work that you have done that reflects these aspects of humanity, or maybe you have an idea of an installation, a painting, drawing, film, or a dance! All mediums are welcome, including poetry, writing or photography.

Due to the ongoing impacts and uncertainty COVID19 - the deadline for content will be open through to the end of June - although naturally we would to receive proposals and content asap before 10th June, so that we can have this year's new fresh content on the website and included in the events listings.
