Funday Friday is being re-launched Friday 3 September 2021, 4 – 5pm
Funday Friday is a cafe style online social space to keep people seeking sanctuary (and those supporting them) connected across the UK.
Every Friday since March 2020, City of Sanctuary has been running ‘Funday Friday’ which began as an immediate response to the lockdown and the need to provide a safe space for people to meet, socialise, improve their English, have conversation and have some fun in the midst of the pandemic. You can find out more Funday Friday here.
The lockdown revealed not only the power of keeping connected online, but the lack of access to mobile data for people seeking sanctuary. City of Sanctuary offer free sim cards for those seeking sanctuary who wish to take part. We are grateful to Citizen Songwriters, an inclusive not-for-profit community arts collective who, with the support of the National Lottery Community Fund, are hosting Funday Friday throughout the autumn and winter this year.
Each Funday Friday (4 – 5pm) will focus on something different: from storytelling around the virtual campfire, to an online karaoke night, from games night, to paper crafts, Funday Friday promises to be lots of fun!
There is a launch party on Friday 3rd September for anyone who wants to come along and find out more.
