Make your own orange heart, and show that you stand Together With Refugees.
During our theme Who We Are (all about how we can stand together with refugees) join us for one of these regular crafting workshops to make an orange heart. We’ll provide materials, with options for sewing, painting, collaging, printing and/or colouring. All welcome.
The orange heart is the symbol adopted by Together With Refugees – a new coalition of national and local organisations, refugees living in Britain, and people from all walks of life.
The heart uses the colours of the flag created by refugee artist Yara Said, for the first ever refugee team in the Olympics in 2016. The colours were inspired by a lifebelt representing hope. It was developed in consultation with refugee organisations and people with lived experience, and is displayed as a symbol of compassion to people fleeing war, persecution or violence.
