Contemporary artist Sophia Moffa is the founder of The Travellers’ Tree CIC which organises activities combining art, nature and the outdoors for asylum seekers in refugee hostels within Birmingham and the West Midlands. This workshop offers the opportunity to reflect and consider notions of place and belonging, by using natural foraged materials to build a sculptural house. Sophia’s work ‘An Unnecessary Figure’, a response to working in a foodbank during lockdown, was recently acquired as part of The New Art Gallery Walsall’s Twenty Twenty Collection
