Refugee Week Guided Walk

Tour22/06/24
Back

As part of Refugee Week UK, we are hosting a guided walk on The Line for refugees, migrants, displaced people, asylum seekers and anyone who wants to celebrate the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees on Saturday 22 June. The walk is also part of The Great Get Together, a joint initiative of Refugee Week UK and The Jo Cox Foundation. It is the UK’s annual celebration of everything that unites our communities, inspired by Jo Cox’s belief that “we have more in common than that which divides us.”

In the spirit of this, we are inviting you to walk together with family, friends, neighbours, strangers and other groups to celebrate Refugee Week on Saturday 22 June. Starting at the House Mill, the walk will be at a gentle pace along the canal, offering a journey of calmness and connection through the city and introducing you to the public art and nature spots hidden within East London.

We will start with an introduction to The Line, and do some simple warm-up activities. We will then walk together for 1 hour, pausing along the route to hear about each artwork. We will finish the walk at about 3.30pm at Cody Dock, an urban ecology retreat near Canning Town, where there will be refreshments and a drop-in creative session until 5pm. There will be a badgemaking station for you to draw designs or write a quote and have it pressed into your own badge.
