A Wolverhampton organisation which has helped more than 2,000 refugees settle in the city is marking Refugee Week with special art projects. ACH is backing an exhibition at Light House Cinema & Cafe Bar.

ACH Wolverhampton is proud to be playing a part in the city’s Refugee Week celebrations through funding the production of a number of pieces of art, including a 4.5-metre wolf, via their #rethinkingrefugee campaign.

A 14-feet high sculpture of a howling wolf is catching attention at Wolverhampton’s Light House.

“I’d like to thank ACH for their ongoing help and support for the Wolf Project. I hope we can create more striking artworks for Wolverhampton in future.”
