The City of Sanctuary project is an initiative started in Sheffield England in 2005, which has now been adopted in the Irish cities of Dublin and Waterford. The project differs from city to city, and has taken different forms through arts, schools, faiths, sports, or health. For example, a theatre project in Derry, Northern Ireland, connected three refugees with three local people whose lives had been affected by the civil war. Then, there are more unusual projects such as bike workshops where locals and refugees can become friends through their passion towards riding a bicycle.
