About Organisation

Hikayetna is a not-for-profit community organisation based in London.

Our mission is to empower local community through enhancing their voices.

Our programmes offer skills training and mentoring to support refugees and migrants into successful careers.

Hikayetna is a multimedia, collaborative, creative initiative that has helped young refugees express themselves through writing, storytelling, and photography since 2014.

We design projects that empower our local community and strength, young people. We create platforms to amplify the underrepresented voices and organise activities that unite different communities

Hikayetna, meaning ‘our story’ in Arabic, is a new art project.
Hikayetna is a non-political and independent initiative that encourages, develops and aids communities in need while promoting tolerance, love, humanity and cultural values.

This initiative is about finding common grounds and interests between people, it neither promotes political agendas nor religious ones. It is about cohesion, integration and bringing communities together through culture and art.

What do we do?

  • Help refugees integrate into their new home countries and cultures
  • Deliver several activities among communities, mainly about culture, to ease integration and remove walls between people who need help
  • Run exhibition, music, and poetry event
  • Helping to integrate refugees by providing digital literacy workshops, cooking classes and access to employment.
  • Bring people and communities together to provide a cultural exchange.
  • Support vulnerable people, especially those coming from refugee camps, by providing training workshops and connecting them with employers and society.
