Refugee Tales

Spode -China Hall

Refugee Tales is a continuation of Stephen Dixon’s on-going World War 1 research project, exploring commemoration through clay and working with refugee and community groups in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. The participants, members of the Jubilee Club, are examining their own perceptions of identity, displacement and migration, and comparing these to the experiences of the Belgian refugees who came to the UK during World War 1. 

Artists: Stephen Dixon, Jo Ayre, Barry Taylor, Johnny Magee and members of the Jubilee Club
