Refugee Week takes place every year in the week around World Refugee Day, 20 June.
In the UK, Refugee Week 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.
2017’s theme is ‘Our Shared Future,’ with an emphasis on:
- We have different pasts, but a shared future
- We must build strong communities to meet the challenges ahead
- Imagining a future without discrimination
