Come along to find out about our work with local communities, plus other positive initiatives happening in Wakefield and the surrounding areas. Coinciding with Refugee Week (17 – 23 June), we will be showcasing our community sculpture projects, which started earlier this year with refugees and migrants from across Leeds and Wakefield.
