This Refugee Week take time to reflect, celebrate our creativity and share stories.

Join artist Ghafar Tajmohammad, poet Laila Sumpton and illustrator Siôn Ap Tomos in a series of creative workshops.

Explore Afghan geometric patterns. Then play with shapes, angles and lines to create your own sculptures. Play in our cardboard storytelling forest. Experiment with pattern, colour and scissors to add your own leaves, flowers and creatures. Then share a story beneath our trees.

Create a kite and start your own flying adventure. Where will you go? What will you do? What will you change?
