Refugee Week Family Event – ‘Our Home’

Join us on Saturday 22nd June 2024 to celebrate Refugee Week (theme: “Our Home”) in the heart of London at Benjamin Franklin House, 36 Craven Street.

Meet our illustrator in residence, Kremena Dimitrova, and hear about her research related to the museum.

Learn about one of 36 Craven Street’s lesser-known 18th Century residents.

Discover how illustration can be used to visualise history by practicing your existing creative skills and by learning new artistic techniques.

Participate in the co-creation of a research comic to be exhibited at Benjamin Franklin House on 2-18 December 2024.

Make your very own visual creations to take with you home.
