This Gallery has been created through a collaboration between Chrysalis Craft Coventry CIC, the Resettlement Team at Coventry City Council and University of Warwick. It includes visual artworks by people with lived experience of sanctuary who have or currently live in Coventry or the West Midlands.
The Gallery forms part of a larger project on Re/Making Home. This includes a live event on 17 June 2021 to launch a research report on Syrian experiences of resettlement as part of the Making Home Away project. You can find out more and read the full report here. For further information please contact Professor Vicki Squire V.J.Squire@warwick.ac.uk
