About the Event
Big Leaf Foundation is a charity supporting displaced young people, primarily unaccompanied asylum-seeking children, across East and West Surrey. They provide a nurturing programme of activities, projects and events that combat social isolation and improve wellbeing.
This year, to celebrate Refugee Week 2022, they are hosting a three-day art installation at Zero Carbon Guildford, exploring this year's theme of "Healing." The installation, which runs from the 21st-23rd of June, will feature paintings, photography, poems, and recordings of dance and musical performances, all made by the young people they support.
Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. It is a platform for people who have sought safety in the UK to share their experiences, perspectives, and creative work on their terms.
The exhibition will be open from 10 am-5 pm from the 21st- 23rd, and we really hope to see you there.
