This week is Refugee Week and ‘Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees‘ has an online programme of activities that you can use to understand more about the situations facing people who become refugees.
Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees.
Through a programme of arts, cultural and educational events alongside media and creative campaigns, Refugee Week brings about positive encounters between communities, helping them to connect and learn from each other, and promoting a culture of welcome.
Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees is hosting online watch parties of films and has some great educational material to help children and young people learn about this important topic.
The broader Refugee Week website has a full programme of online events, including poetry, drawing, dance workshops and much much more.
The week culminates in National Refugee Day on Sunday.
