REFUGEE POINT, the home of the the Refugees and Arts Initiative
The Refugees and Arts Initiative was
launched in 1999 by the London Arts Council to support
and develop the artistic and cultural activity to
be found within all of the capital's refugee communities.
The activities of the Initiative have grown and developed
under the coordination of a Steering Group made up
of refugee artists, arts organizations and practitioners,
funders and refugee agencies. In 2004 the Initiative
became an independent organization.
the last four years we have worked to promote and
develop access for refugees and artists to training,
employment, resources and creative exhibitions and
to develop links with mainstream arts bodies and funders.
Today, our focus is on the key themes of community,
wellbeing, social enterprise, ecology, advocacy
and money - for the vulnerable and poor. YES, in all
of these activities we discovered a refugee point,
and we want to make it ! The unemployed, refugees,
local people and particularly youth, are now the main
target for distress, disperation and dominance. While,
actually they are created FREE.
We have a 'Communison system' which enables us to
trade, communicate and collaborate better while
providing useful services for the community. To avoid
DDD... we also put out concerts, displays and
competitions, that advocate for human rights, for
peace, for values, respect and charity. Our only currency is
good deeds. Imagine!
