Refugee Week is coming! Get involved now


Refugee Week runs from 17th-23rd June this year celebrating the huge contribution refugees have made to the UK.

There will be events up and down the country with highlights including, screenings of ‘I am Nasrine’ at Picture House cinemas and a concert in Birmingham with fantastic Senegalese musician Diabel Cissokho. Go to the Refugee Week website to see the full listings and find out what is happening near you. Get involved!

This year the Celebrating Sanctuary festival in London will see an Embassy for Refugees installed on the South Bank. It is going to be fantastic day with music from African desert blues band Etran Finatawa and folk singer Sam Carter. The Embassy itself will host talks around sanctuary and the arts, architecture, history and law as well as spoken word performances. For more information see the Celebrating Sanctuary page

STAR is getting involved with a stall at Celebrating Sanctuary London, on the South Bank, 16th June 2pm-7pm. Make sure you come and say hi!
