Copenhagen Coffee Shop Holds Daily Workshops for Refugees

The Candy Factory Coffee shop held a food drive for Syrian Refugees in Copenhagen last Monday.

This event takes place a year after the Danish Ministry of Immigration passed a new bill making it harder for Syrian Refugees to enter the country and reunited with their families.

The Candy Factory, also known as the Blosje Factory is a non-profit, non-commercial space focused on cultural, social and political activities.

Starting in November, The Candy Factory began working with several refugee projects that work with asylum seekers and refugees to help them integrate into society.  

The location holds space for a cinema, gallery, media workshop, studio, serigraphic workshop, bicycle workshop, wooden workshop, metal workshop, bar, cafe and a room where free concerts can be held.
