Refugee Week 2015: time to get creative!

We’re getting prepared for Refugee Week, which takes place from 15-21st June this year. Refugee Week is a UK-wide programme of arts, cultural and educational events and activities that celebrates the contribution of refugees to the UK and promotes better understanding of why people seek sanctuary.

The theme for this year is ‘celebrate’. We would love to see our pledged supporters getting involved in Refugee Week. Why not organise an event to celebrate the week, you could work together with another one of our fabulous supporters.

Or you could join us in celebrating the contributions of refugees to the UK. We are asking our supporters to create and submit a photo displaying how your organisation welcomes, involves and celebrates refugees. Look at our example below for inspiration!

Think about what your organisation does to welcome, involve and celebrate refugees. Simply take a photo of what you do, then email a copy to [email protected]

We will then share your photo throughout our networks, demonstrating refugee’s contributions to Swansea, Wales and the UK.

We’re excited to see what you create!
