Junior Peacemakers Workshop: A Sense of Belonging ~ Welcoming Refugees & Asylum Seekers

Friday 21 June
9:45-14:30

Costs: Free

Peace Hub, Birmingham, B4 6AF

We are hosting a free workshop with the Peace Hub for 4 children [Years 5 or 6] and one adult [two if required].

Birmingham is a City of Sanctuary, part of a national movement to build a culture of hospitality for people seeking safety and sanctuary in the UK.

This workshop will allow your older primary pupils to explore what it means to seek asylum or refugee status in the UK.  We will use case studies of young people who have made their home in the West Midlands.

The workshop will be interactive and engaging and will inspire your four young people to go back to school and share what they have learnt with their peers. They will think about what it means to be active citizens in their primary schools, in the secondary schools they will be moving onto and in their local communities.

These workshops are very popular so please download and return the booking form as soon as you can. A flier is also available for download. We have space for 3 schools on each day and priority will be given to schools who have not attended these workshops before.

The Peace Hub is at 41 Bull Street, a 10 minute walk from New Street station, 3 minutes from Snow Hill Station, 10 minutes from Moor Street station and has a tram stop right outside the front door! Limited parking is available.
