Dance for Refuge have teamed up with women designers to create four custom prints around International Women’s Day, with all proceeds heading to Women for Refugee Women. The designs by Lizy Bending, Emily Eavis, Sofia Lucarelli and Caterina Bianchini are inspired by invaluable work that Women for Refugee Women do. You can check out the designs here.
Dance For Refuge started in 2015 when the refugee crisis was desperate in Calais, a team of party people doing what they do best and raising money by putting on parties. Tune into NTS Radio from 6pm to 7pm on International Women’s Day to hear the Dance For Refuge and Women For Refugee Women discussing the project, and the work they do.
