Will you be organising an event during Refugee Week 18th – 26th June 2022? Add it to a calendar of events.

April 13, 2022

Another year has passed, and Refugee Week (18th-26th June) is coming round again.

This year, we would like to put together an in-print brochure/flyer and online calendar of events and activities taking place during Refugee Week in Oxfordshire. If you are planning on organising something to mark Refugee Week this year – either virtually or in person – and you would like it to be included in our round-up, please email advocacy@asylum-welcome.org with the following details:

  • Date and time
  • Location
  • Ticket price (if applicable)
  • Accessibility info (if applicable)
  • Link to website/booking page/link if an online event
  • Optional: a photo

Please send us this information by Monday 23rd May to be included in the printed materials. Events can be added to the online calendar later.  A guide to organising a Refugee Week event created by Counterpoints Arts, who oversee Refugee Week nationally can be downloaded here: Refugee-Week-2022-organiser-pack

Asylum Welcome have a date in the diary for an all-day event on Saturday 25th June, which is free entry and open to all:

‘To mark Refugee Week 2022, Asylum Welcome is working in conjunction with Oxford’s thriving network of Refugee Community Organisations to host an all-day bazaar in the grounds of Magdalen College School. Community organisations including the Oxford North African Community, Oxford Sudanese Supplementary School, Syrian Sisters, Iraqi Women Art and War (IWAW), Oxford Asian Women’s Voice, BK LUWO Group and Refugee Resource Women’s Group will sell food and other goods, share art and music, and raise awareness about the valuable work each group undertakes in our community.

In the afternoon, students from MCS and St. Edward’s School will host a student-led discussion. This will be followed by a panel chaired by BBC Political Correspondent Rob Watson, with guests including MP Layla Moran, Afghan children’s rights activist Freshta Karim and Jan Royall, Principal of Somerville College (one of Oxford University’s two Colleges of Sanctuary). As the evening draws on, we will enjoy a performance by Syrian musician Maya Youssef.’
