My Connect is an Arts-based community development programme for Asylum Seekers and Refugees newly arrived to Birmingham.
Our programme offers the opportunity for participants to connect with each other after significant displacement and create positive peer networks grounded in established communities.
We use arts practice and established community spaces in Ladywood to create safe and friendly spaces for participants to explore and express freely.
Some of the work made so far can be seen here:
