Refugee Youth in Public Space


Creative map making session in Newcastle

The research team in Newcastle, UK, ran a creative map making session as part of the create classes offered by North East Solidarity and Teaching (N.E.S.T). The map making was used to explore people’s personal geographies in the city, their use of public space, their everyday journeys and sense of belonging. Around 10 young asylum seekers and refugees, alongside a number of student volunteers, participated in the session. Check out the pictures to see the session and some of the maps created.
