Art Refuge is a nonprofit organisation that works through art with people who have been displaced due to political or religious persecution, armed conflict, trafficking, natural disaster and/or poverty since 2006.

Their core ethos is based upon a participatory and collaborative practice informed by decades of individual and collective experience and skills in the visual arts, art therapy, trauma work and psychosocial approaches. Always working in close partnership with local and international government and non-governmental organisations, their work largely takes place through groups, currently operating in London, Bristol and on the France-UK border at Calais.

They engage in public discourse through their active use of social media as an advocacy platform as well as a place to celebrate people’s creative agency, fundraising events, exhibitions, peer-reviewed and other academic writing, presentation of papers at conferences and delivery of arts-based psychosocial training programmes.
