Refugee Week international meet-up : 25 March 10.00-11.15 (UK time)

Refugee Week has been running each June for more than 20 years in the UK and Australia, growing all the time. Now we'd like to reach out across the world to partners in the arts and refugee/migration sectors who want to join us in celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and asylum seekers.

Refugee Week is a festival that happens around UN World Refugee Day on 20 June, and anyone can take part by running their own event or activity. We'd like to share how we have developed our networks and programmes, working with arts and culture to connect with wide audiences and bring a positive message of self-representation, as well as hearing from others about the work they are doing in countries around the world.

We are inviting organisations and individuals (including those based in the UK with international connections) to join us to discuss taking part in Refugee Week 2021, to make connections and see how best we can link up and work together.

If you would like to attend, please email

And please share this message with anyone who you think might be interested.
