Refugee Week Art and Writing Exhibition

Welcome to the Islington Centre’s online Art and Writing exhibition.

Refugee Week is an annual celebration centred around World Refugee Day on 20th June. Through art, culture and education, the movement highlights the positive contributions refugees bring to new communities and raises awareness of their continued struggles here in the UK.

To celebrate this year, we have compiled six poems and six pieces of artwork created by our Art and Writing Group. We hope you find their words and images as poignant and uplifting as we do.

A huge thank you to Jane Ray and Sita Brahmachari for leading the Art and Writing activities.

Each image and poem is a pair. Click each work to find its matching image or poem beneath!
