Refugee Week logo

Next week is Refugee Week 2023!

Refugee Week is the world’s largest arts and culture festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of people seeking sanctuary. It’s been running in the UK since 1998 and is always the week around World Refugee Day (20 June). This year’s Refugee Week theme is Compassion.

In Oxford, a full programme of events has been organised throughout the week, led by Asylum Welcome. Check out the full list.

As part of this programme, on Monday afternoon at Queen Elizabeth House, the RSC’s Refugee-Led Research Hub is holding a Sanctuary Community Meet & Greet event for local students, staff, practitioners and organisations. See details here.

We hope to see you in Oxford next week!
