Some people can dream even if they are not sleeping is an exhibition of artwork produced by male asylum seekers, refugees and migrants new to Wolverhampton. The artworks were produced as part of This Way Up, a creative wellbeing project by Creative Health CIC. Inspired by the gallery collections and using drawing as a foundation, participants learned different skills and techniques, developing their own work and ideas. This exhibition provides a platform for showcasing the achievements of those involved, and for sharing their stories, experiences and reflections on home. The project is a partnership between the Refugee and Migrant Centre (Wolverhampton & The Black Country), Creative Health (Arts & Health) CIC and Wolverhampton Art Gallery, with Public Health City of Wolverhampton Council.
