Today we held the first meeting for the 'stART up' project supporting creative industries skills for refugees, asylum seekers and other memebers of the minority communities. Funded by Community Foundation for Merseyside.
We worked with women from Student Action for Refugees Women's Group. Lots of women were there and as well as having a nice time together we started a new project. We will be making a magazine in printed as well an online magazine!
The womans came up with very interesting ideas today of what they want to put in the it, such as fashion, cultural sharing, social issues, migration, personal stories, etc.
So we look forward to what evolves!
The men's 'stART up' programme will be starting soon, so watch this space...
