Maison Foo are proud to be a Theatre Company of Sanctuary. During the preview tour of A Thing Mislaid, Maison Foo welcomed over 120 refugees and asylum seekers through the doors of Theatres and Art Centres throughout the Midlands.

During the making and tour of our new show A Thing Mislaid Maison Foo worked with Derby Theatre and Derby Refugee Advice Centre to set up The Refugee Friends Scheme. The scheme saw us work with touring partners to develop ways of making theatres more welcoming spaces to refugees and those currently seeking asylum. We also hosted a range of additional events throughout Summer and Autumn 2018 as opportunities for people to make new friends, to meet surrounding communities and be creative.
