Refugee Week is the world’s largest arts and culture festival celebrating the contributions, resilience and creativity of refugees and people seeking sanctuary.

Every year hundreds of independently organised events take place across the UK and around the world. Discover what’s happening near you by searching through the calendar below. To find your regional or international Refugee Week organisers visit this page.

Refugee Week is an umbrella festival and everyone is invited to take part. For information on how to get involved visit this page. When you’re ready you can upload your Refugee Week event to our events calendar by registering for an account and submitting your event.

Please note, once your event is submitted it needs to be approved by Refugee Week administrators, this means there can be a delay of a few days until your event is visible on the website.
