Refugee Week Scotland 2012, 18-24 June 2012, Across Scotland

The Scottish Refugee Council will be holding it’s Refugee Week with an exciting week of events being held across Scotland.

Dates: 16-24 June 2012

Venue: Across Scotland

Each year Refugee Week grows and increases in profile, making its mark on the UK’s cultural calendar. This year’s theme Spirit captures:

  • Spirit of survival and the individual – the determination needed to flee persecution and rebuild your life
  • Community spirit – the connections between refugees and local communities
  • Scotland’s spirit – the cultural diversity of Scotland today

Refugee Week is all about having fun, broadening horizons and breaking down barriers. Every June the week long UK-wide festival of arts, cultural and educational events celebrates contributions refugees have made to the UK, and promotes understanding about why people seek sanctuary.
