World in One City

Over the past 5 years, we have been working with the refugee and asylum community in Stoke-On-Trent, to explore participants cultural identity, place and heritage. 


This year resident artist Jo Ayre and assistant Alice Thatcher have been bringing togther food and clay, to encourage the group to reflect/make sense of the new community they find themselves within. 

We'd like to thank everyone at Burslem Jubilee, who provide essentail support and and services to 40-60 adults living in the City who await decisions on their visa or immigration/asylum status. The leaders and participants make the project what it is.

World In One City is being delivered in conjunction with: Manchester Metropolitan University, Stoke-On-Trent City Council (LEP) and BArts
