A Warm Welcome

August 2019

We have been working on this wonderful project with Journeys Festival International and After18, look out around Leicester city centre for the artworks!

A Warm Welcome is an intergenerational project bringing together unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people with older and second generation refugees. Inspired by a letter written by Lord Dubs to newly arrived young refugees, the participants have worked with poet, Jess Green, to explore what they have learnt since arriving in the UK and what advice they’d give to new arrivals.

In collaboration with visual artist James Chantry, the participants have transformed these letters into posters that will be displayed in window spaces across Leicester City Centre.
