This week we attended Counterpoint Arts' Refugee Week Conference at Amnesty International's headquarters and were encouraged by all of the conversations we had with fellow refugee support groups (arts-focused and otherwise) who met to discuss 'what ELSE can we do.' While Refugee Week is a positively brilliant mechanism for ensuring that celebrating refugees and their contributions is built into the calendar, we should be sure to remember EVERY that week is refugee week. Here's to connecting further and working together to ensure that ALL rights are preserved and all humans are celebrated.
See what you can do to celebrate and support refugee communities for #RefugeeWeek and every week.
