Refugee Camp is an interactive experience that highlights issues affecting refugees and asylum seekers in the UK and abroad.
It celebrates the history of refugees within UK communities and challenges some of the myths and stereotypes that often lead to prejudice and discrimination.
Refugee Camp is divided into seven zones which allude to the basic requirements of a real refugee camp. The seven zones are:
Refugee Camp provides an opportunity for organisations to deliver community engagement activities in these zones. Organisations can collaborate and work in partnership, or work in more than one zone with different activities.
Refugee Camp has been delivered three times in Norwich with a wide range of partners. We are currently exploring ways to make Refugee Camp a downloadable resource that other organisations can use to facilitate Refugee Camp events schools, colleges and public spaces across the UK.
Throughout the project I was impressed with the Outsiders professionalism and passion for making the initiative work. They managed to turn an idea into reality into a very short space of time, successfully bringing on side a range of partners.LOUISE CORNELL, NORFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL
