Creative Refuge: The book acts as an educational manual for art-based contextual creative learning with children in space of refuge ; a catalogue of the children’s stories, dreams, play spaces and games; and a research documenting the social and spatial findings of Dream (1and 2) and Play Space project workshops held in Burj El Barajneh Palestinian refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon.
 
The book gives glimpses of the current camp’s environment and social context; specifically of the reciprocal relationship between the spatial conditions in the camp and the social practices invented in response to living within it.
