Artist needed: St Augustine’s Halifax
27th April 2020

A paid opportunity from St Augustine’s, Halifax


We work with 600 refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, a third of whom are in family groups. They come from approx. 40 countries and speak 52 different languages. Some have been granted leave to stay in the UK, but most are involved in lengthy, legal negotiations with the Home office for the right to be in this county. This process often goes on for years.

It can be tricky explaining the complex and varying needs our centre users face, which have been further compounded by Covid-19.

We thought it would be useful – both as a tool and an awareness raising device – to try and capture these issues visually. We love the infographic and illustrative approach to conveying information clearly, and we wanted to combine that with an artist’s style, to make something eye-catching.

Deadline for applications: 12noon Friday 1st May
