The Paper Airplanes Project organizes creative workshops designed to educate students in Seattle schools about the lives of refugees in the United States and in African countries. These workshops are co-led by former refugees and explore self-expression through writing, art and the theme of "Home". There is an optional public performance/exhibition and fund-raising component of the workshops. If you are interested in having a workshop in your classroom or school, please contact us!
