Refugee Week is the world’s largest arts and culture festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary, and this year it’ll be running from the 17th to the 23rd of June 2024.

The theme for Refugee Week 2024 is “Our Home”. From thinking about our bodies as our homes, how we can make whole neighbourhoods more welcoming and how to care for our collective home, planet Earth. Everyone is invited to celebrate what our Our Home means to them and make Our Home a more welcoming, safe and sustainable place for all.

Following the 25th anniversary of Refugee Week last year which saw over 9,500 events in 130 locations up and down the country, and a total of 1.1 million people taking part, Refugee Week once again calls upon individuals, artists, communities, organisations, and changemakers to embrace compassion, understanding, and unity.

Through city-wide takeover festivals, compelling exhibitions, moving performances, culinary experiences, comedy, sport and more, these events will inspire audiences and convey the shared human experiences that bring us together.
