The HumaniTea Party is a mixed media art project which aims to celebrate the contribution famous refugees have made in world history.
The project, by the Norwich based community interest company The Friend Ship, is being launched at the Norfolk Makers’ Festival with arts and crafts activities for the half term holiday.
Activities on offer, suitable for all ages and abilities, are drawing and painting portraits and banners, creating metal place name holders, making canvas and paper books and other hands-on crafts.
No unaccompanied young people under 14.
You will be helping to make an art installation which will be put on show during Refugee Week in June 2019. It will be a large table with settings for eight well-known refugees.
Take a seat, have some fun and help The Friend Ship challenge stereotypes through art.
People who visited Makers’ Month in 2018 may remember the Postcards for Peace project, which was also run by The Friend Ship. During the event hundreds of postcards were made welcoming refugee children to the UK.
The Friend Ship aims to promote a greater understanding of displaced people and supports their integration into the local community through community workshops and arts projects.
