This article examines the role of construction materials, story and group as alternative forms of shelter and crisis relief for refugees in transit in Calais, northern France. It draws on examples from an ongoing art therapy project delivered by Art Refuge UK since Autumn 2015, first in the large makeshift refugee camp known as ‘The Jungle’ and since in various settings in and around Calais, including a day centre for unaccompanied refugees.
