Six refugee women joined us to visit the Njideka Akunyili Crosby exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.

Njideka Akunyili Crosby is a Nigerian artist who migrated to the USA. The themes of culture and identity that she explores in her work resonated with the refugee women in our network, some of whom felt inspired to start creating their own art.

We are grateful to the artist Caroline Walker for organising this trip and introducing Crosby’s artwork to the women in our network. Trips like this are an important part of making refugee women feel welcome and introducing them to free spaces that they can access within London.
