What is home? a mixed-media exhibtion for Refugee Week, 16-21 June 2014

This is a chance to showcase your artwork at a city-centre venue, for a week.

The City of Sanctuary Schools Project is organising a mixed-media exhibition in Refugee Week on the theme of  "What is home?".  The exhibition, at the Fabric Gallery, 33A Broadway, Bradford BD1 1H, will be open from Monday 16 June to Saturday 21 June 2014, from 11-00am to 5-00pm, with later opening, to 9-30pm, on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

This is an all-age exhibition.  We will have work from a number of adult artists, including asylum seekers and refugees.  We now need more exhibits from schools and colleges.  Work can be in any medium, framed or unframed, on the theme of "What is home?", interpreted in any way you wish.  We are looking for work from Reception up to Year 12, or from post-16 students..


The Gallery will be open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 13-15 June to receive work.  Alternatively, we can collect it from you.

There is a short programme of performances, story-telling and drama to accompany the exhibition.   We would like to add some more performances to the programme, particularly music, as there are a number of slots still free.
The opening event is on Monday 16 June, from 4-30pm.  Music will be provided by Carlton Bolling College and professional musicians, who are asylum seekers and refugees.  There will be personal testimony from young people from asylum seeker / refugee backgrounds. We will also be making the first School of Sanctuary award in Bradford, at the event.  There are free refreshments and everyone is invited.  Please come along to see and hear about what we are doing, even if you are unable to contribute to the exhibition.
