Hope of arriving in my home
We were hugely proud to launch The Welcome Tent tour in Nottingham in August 2017, our adopted home for many years. Poet Mohammad AKA The Dream read again the poem he had first shared with us two years earlier in Calais, his words "hope of arriving in my home, where my tears are my own" articulating the dream of so many.
Our experiences in Calais and the people we met there had a profound affect on us, and now here we are, having quit our jobs and our lives in the UK, living and working from our van to head on the journey of a lifetime with The Welcome Tent. Behind the scenes in Nottingham, a volunteer crew of people from all over the world, many displaced through conflict, side-by-side with UK residents seeking peace and justice for all.
