For Refugee Week 2020 (15-21 June) we are calling on the creative people of Shropshire: Visual Artists, Crafters, Writers, Poets, Musicians & Actors to contribute something to our website that connects with this year’s national refugee week theme of Imagine.


Your response can take any creative form, it can be a new work or something you have made in the past that you feel resonates with the plight and promise of the refugees resettling here in Shropshire and elsewhere.

Due to COVID19 - the deadline is open through to the end of June - although naturally we would like some content before 15th June.

For more information and to take part please contact

Niki Holmes:

Take a look at these Creative workshops taking place in Refugee Week and June 


We are also inviting everyone to do one or more of the Simple Acts.

These can all done at home, inspired by the theme ‘Imagine’.


Simple Acts are everyday actions we can all do to stand with refugees and make new connections in our communities. You will be joining a big, creative, collective movement across the UK imagining a better world. Imagination is how change begins.
