Arts workshops and training leading into Refugee Week 2018 – Swansea Meetings

August 1, 2017

Refugee Week takes place every year across the world in the week around World Refugee Day on the 20 June. In the UK, Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities.”

In Swansea, Rosie Leach is the Refugee Week Wales Coordinator, and she is looking to organise meetings to discuss the programme of events for Wales during this event. She says:

“I’m writing with regard to the programme of creative workshops and training that I’m going to be coordinating over the next year, funded by Arts Council Wales. The programme aims to provide opportunities for people with experience of migration or seeking asylum in Wales to develop and share their artistic skills, gain access to arts institutions, and create exciting new work for Refugee Week 2018. The programme will take place in Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and Wrexham and cover a mixture of art forms, including storytelling, photography and painting. ”

“I’m looking to organise a meeting in the next few weeks for people to discuss the upcoming workshops in Swansea; share ideas as to what the workshops include and start a wider conversation about planning the programme of events for Refugee Week 2018.

If you are interested in attending, could you let me know if the which of the following dates would work best for you:

Tuesday 8th August – 10am- 12pm, or 2-4pm
