Refugee Week 2022 is here and The Bike Project has a whole week of fun planned! Based on this year’s theme of healing together we have organised online and in-person activities to showcase the wellbeing and physical healing elements of cycling.
Kicking us off we recently had two art wellbeing workshops with the talented Anna Virabyam- landscape artist and Armenian refugee. In the sessions participants were encouraged to draw expressively using charcoal and reflect on how cycling makes them feel. Everyone really enjoyed the sessions and made some amazing artwork.
Hiba, one of the participants, described the workshops as “Healing , Repairing , Motivation and Happiness towards to Life ❤️”.
