We are looking for events to add to our Refugee Week programme. Refugee Week runs from 17th-23rd June and the theme this year is ‘You, Me & Those Who Came Before’.
Refugee Week started in 1998 and is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities. Events can be of any sort – arts, sports, cultural, culinary. Use your imagination!
Last year we had two very successful events displaying some amazing artwork by Mohammed Ehlalouch along with food cooked by the Syrian refugee community and beautiful needlework by Afghan ladies living in Preston.
Lancashire County Council are putting together a brochure for Refugee Week so if you would like your event to be included please contact us by 15th April. Please also contact us if you would like any assistance in preparing an event from Refugee Week. As always our email address is [email protected]
