Happy, Safe and Free Project

Happy, Safe and Free is a year long, mass participation art project, which aims to explore and develop empathy for refugees and migrants forced to make dangerous journeys to make it to the UK.

10,000 young people across Manchester took part in Happy, Safe and Free project. how to take part in the 8th part of the project. Young people from each participating school were asked to turn the artworks into papier-mache bowls.

The bowls represent the resilience refugees show in re-building their lives after losing happiness, safety and freedom. The bowls were decorated by members of the refugee groups to create unique and purposeful works of art which were exhibited and sold in Part 9 of our year long Happy, Safe and Free project.

Recently Mrs Ahmed went to the Happy, Safe and Free exhibition at the Whitworth Gallery. Here are some photos of her visit and MHS students with their bowls that they made.
