Arts Council Funding Award Success

JOY_I DID IT

I am over the moon to announce that I have been awarded Arts Council funding for Anti-Slavery Refugee Art Project. This was made possible thanks to the kind support of the 22 people who helped kickstart the project by donating to my crowdfunding appeal.

It’s down to you! Thank you!

Open Call for Aprons

APRON APPEAL!! I’m launching the first workshop for Anti-Slavery Refugee Art Project tomorrow and I’m a bit short on aprons. If anyone local has a spare apron lying around that you don’t need, would you like to donate it for the workshops? I can return them at the end but they may get paint on them! Thanks!!

I’m still crowdfunding and I’m just £150 short of my goal, so it’s not too late to donate at http://www.gofundme.com/antislaveryrefugeeartproject (or in person if you want to avoid the online hassle) if you would like to back this community project.

Anti-Slavery Refugee Art Project Fundraising Appeal 2018

Can you help me launch a community art project by making a small donation at https://www.gofundme.com/antislaveryrefugeeartproject?

I am crowdfunding to run a collaborative art project for refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants supported by Migrant Help in Dover.

The project will be a celebration of the uniqueness of self-identity. It will provide participants the opportunity to move beyond the labels of ‘asylum seeker, refugee and migrant’ to express who they are as individuals. I hope the process of making an artwork together will generate a sense of belonging and make a positive difference to participants’ experience of life in the UK.

I need your help to make this project a success. Every penny donated will help me get this project off the ground. Thank you so much for making a donation. Please spread the word!
