Bristol Refugee Festival is a month long programme of arts, cultural and educational events that brings together communities across the city to celebrate the contribution refugees make to Bristol.
Our aims are
- To promote better understanding as to why people seek sanctuary
- Help overcome misconceptions that can create hostility
- Value the diversity and talent that refugees and asylum seekers bring to Bristol
- Support successful integration.
It is linked to a UK wide initiative called Refugee Week which takes place every year in the week around World Refugee Day on 20th June.
