About

A Warm Welcome

A Warm Welcome is an inter-generational 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.

The young people have also worked with Dimple Patel to create recordings which will be shared here soon.

This exhibition can be seen at Curve theatre throughout the Festival and will be open for you to explore before and after both performances of Pizza Shop Heroes by Phosphoros Theatre.
