Many of the refugees were talented artists. Exhibitions and sale of the art and handcraft were organised in the British and American Hotels in Trieste, where the refugees received much interest and admiration for their work as well as a small amount of money.

Examples of the art and handcraft are presented below. (please also see sketches and drawings presented under the 'Photos and drawings' section).
