Join us for a Morning tea with a difference. Tickets are available via Eventbrite

The theme of Refugee Week 2019, ‘You, me and those who came before’, is an invitation to explore the lives of refugees – and those who have welcomed them – throughout the generations.

On the 22nd June 2019 as we hope to bring together the old and the young, those who have been here for decades and those who have just arrived – and find out what we can learn from those who sought safety in Britain and those who welcomed them. Come and share your story and hear from others.

A highlight of this event is a digital art exhibition by Assyrian and Yazidi artists showing works about the suffering of their peoples in Iraq and Syria during the recent wars and after the genocide committed ISIS against their peoples in 2014. Dr Naures Atto at the University of Cambridge (Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies) has been researching the fate and migration experiences of these two groups as vulnerable groups in the Middle East within her research project RESPOND: Multi-level Governance in Europe and Beyond (https://www.ames.cam.ac.uk/people/dr-naures-atto The digital art exhibition runs for all of Refugee Week, 17th - 21st June in the Institute of Criminology, Sidgwick Ave, Cambridge CB3 9DA.
