TRICYCLE Theatre is one of the hosts of a week-long event to celebrate refugees in England during Refugee Week on June 14 to 29, as part of a national campaign, writes Ima Jackson-Obot.
The Simple Acts campaign aims to change the perception of refugees and encourage people across the UK to do something small to make life better for them.
By registering every Simple Act completed on the website, the aim is to reach a total of 20,000 by June 20.
This will be a first-time ever collaboration between the theatre, Kilburn Library, Salusbury WORLD charity, Granville Plus Youth Arts Centre and Capital City Academy.
