I am Refugee 2

The ‘I am a Refugee’ exhibition, created by the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, will be on view at the New Room / John Wesley’s Chapel from Monday 19th June to Sunday 9th July. It is part of the ‘I am a Refugee’ campaign which celebrates refugees and their contributions to the UK. It reminds the public that those who are given sanctuary give so much back in return. By illustrating the diversity of the refugee population, the array of experiences they have had, and the dedication, creativity, skills and knowledge that they bring to the UK, this powerful visual campaign helps to create a positive and balanced debate on refugee issues. 19th June – 15th July.
