the travellers’ tree

CIC

We organise art, nature and outdoor activities for refugees and asylum seekers in refugee hostels within Birmingham and the West Midlands.

The asylum seeker claim can be a gruelling and stressful process, we hope with these projects to help refugees get to know their new surroundings, socialise express themselves and stay active within the urban green spaces!

We aim to integrate and introduce refugees with organisations and community projects to make their stay more welcoming.

the travellers tree also organise affordable art workshops for the wider community!

check us out on social media for any updates!

First walk and paint session with one of the refugee hotels in Birmingham, it was a wonderful walk.. we did almost 10 km!! Forgot to switch my record on.. but here’s most of it! 

Well done to the beautiful family who took part! You were a pleasure to meet and get to know.

It’s really important we run more activities for the community that are going through their asylum claim, which is often a very stressful and frustrating process. Connecting and showing this community around their new home is not only great fun but extremely rewarding and helpful for all of us both physically and mentally. 
Fantastic start to out clay pot and pit firing workshops! 
Thank you to everyone who booked on, you are a fab group with amazing skills. 
Was a pleasure meeting everyone and chatting with tea, clay and fire! 

Charcoal workshop at the @digbethcommunitygarden a few weeks ago. It was great to start engaging with the community and running affordable art workshops in the centre of Birmingham. 
Thank you to all who came and to the amazing space that the garden provides. 
Keep an eye out in the next few weeks we are planning a clay workshop!
