Story

We are collaborating with Hackney Migrant Centre who offer support to refugees, migrants and asylum seeking families and individuals. In their day centre we facilitate a weekly art therapy group called 'Community Threads' inviting people to join together in an ongoing sewing project.

Many of the people accessing Hackney Migrant Centre are displaced due to war, persecution and poverty. They arrive to the centre seeking support with asylum claims and help with housing issues. For many this is a distressing time as they seek safety for themselves and their families.

The Community Threads project aims to reduce anxiety, depression and isolation by creating a welcoming, engaging, and safe art making group. We have received lots of feedback that the groups are invaluable as respite from stress and worry and have encourgaed people to go onto further education in textiles and to seek out therapeutic support.

Our project was funded by the London Mayors Culture Seeds funding but that money has now run out! We need your help to raise £2000 to continue this valuable work whilst we secure further funding for the future of the group. The money goes towards the materials needed and to pay our trained and qualified art psychotherapists to facilitate the groups.

If you would like to find out more about us please check us out on Facebook: DrawOnProject and Instagram: @drawon.project or email us on drawonproject@gmail.com.

We thank you for your time and generosity!
