Every year, Refugee Week is celebrated across the world throughout the week surrounding World Refugee Day, which is on the 20th June. In the UK, Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, culture and educational events and activities that celebrates the contribution of refugees to the UK and promotes better understanding of why people seek sanctuary.
2018 celebrates 20 years of Refugee Week and Refugee Support Devon will be organising or participating in a number of events across the week as listed below. The theme for this year’s Refugee Week is ‘Different Pasts, Shared Future.’
