Jess, Naomi & Art Refuge UK
Kathmandu, Nepal
Define the word “Refuge”

We took a group from the Nepal Children's Art Museum out to explore they city. We took a walk around the local area and thought about all the interesting places high, low, open & public or hidden, that we saw. We chose a space to claim as our own for an afternoon and made our very own refuge within it from all the found objects we had collected and some extras from our very simple portable studio.


We believe that if everyone does at least one of these simple actions, we could make a big change to the way refugees are perceived in the UK.

Fancy a natter?

Welcome to our website and thank you for choosing to do something simple to help refugees!

First at all we would like to thank you for all the contributions done during or around Refugee Wee. We are extremely happy with all the engagement and projects that happened for this event!

Simple Acts is about both, raising awareness and learning but also about those beautiful and everyday but often life affecting connections we make with one another.

There is no story that is not important enough to add or too small. It's often those very small actions and contributions that make a huge difference.

if you get involved and for example cook a delicious dish from another country, share a song or your own My Simple Act etc. etc. please please go ahead!

You do an action don't forget to log your activity on our action counter!
