We are delighted to announce the dates for TWO Refugee Week Conferences in 2019!

Due to the long waiting lists Refugee Week Conference has had in recent years, we’ve decided to double the seats on offer by holding two conferences in February 2019.

We’re thrilled that the new conference will be held at Coventry Cathedral, in partnership with Positive Youth Foundation and other partners in Coventry, which will be European City of Sport in 2019 and UK’s City of Culture in 2021.

As usual the London Conference will be at Amnesty International Human Rights Action Centre in Shoreditch, thanks to our national partners Amnesty International.

The dates for your diary are:

Refugee Week Conference COVENTRY (Coventry Cathedral): Monday 11 February, 10am – 5pm

Refugee Week Conference LONDON (Amnesty International Human Rights Action Centre): Friday 15 February, 10am – 5pm

The two conferences will have the same core programme, so you only need to attend one!

The Refugee Week Conference is a day of inspiration, learning and networking in preparation for Refugee Week, the UK’s largest festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees (17-23 June 2019). Whether you’re a Refugee Week veteran or interested in getting involved for the first time, all are welcome.

Programme and booking details will be released soon.

We’d love to hear from you about the workshop or discussion topics you’d most like to see at the conference. Is there a particular tool or skill that would really benefit your Refugee Week activities? A relevant issue you’d like to explore with others? Let us know via this quick Google form.

Finally, a travel budget is available for those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to come, particularly delegates from refugee and asylum seeker community groups. Please email emily@counterpointsarts.org.uk if you need your travel covered.

Hope to see you in February!
