Pop-up Conversation Cafe launches for Ukrainian refugees and locals
A pop-up Conversation Café is being launched in Exeter for Ukrainian refugees and host families to meet up.
The pop-up Café, located at 6 Paris Street, is the brainchild of Olya Petrakova and Maketank, and will launch today (Friday 25 March) with a first meet-up between 5pm and 8pm.
The Café will be a place for local people to address the Ukrainian crisis – especially those who have expressed an interest to host refugees, Ukrainians settling in Exeter and the surrounding area, but also for people to find out information, fundraise, meet up and socialise.
The initiative has come about thanks to Maketank, a partnership working with organisations such as Devon for Ukraine, Exeter City Council and others.
Everyone is welcome to attend the opening event on Friday evening, where representatives from Exeter City Council and local communities will be dropping in at different times.
