Open Call for Aprons

web joy in apron

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 (or in person if you want to avoid the online hassle) if you would like to back this community project.

Can you help me launch a community art project by making a small donation at

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

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!
