Come and join in this event with family
This will be quite a unique event. It will be a youth sports and cultural One World festival, which will be a celebration of Refugee Week. Refugee Week takes place every year across the world in the week around World Refugee Day, which is on the 20 June.
The Refugee Week 2019 theme is 'With Refugees' and this continues a 3 year theme for Refugee Week 2019 in Australia.
In 2019, there will be a new focus to celebrate through sharing food and stories from around the world! It will be to start a conversation in your workplace, school or community.
Refugee Week actually started in 1998 as a direct result of hostility in the press and society in general towards refugees and asylum seekers. Refugee Week is now one of the leading national events working against this negative approach. It defends the importance of sanctuary and the benefits that this gives to both refugees and host communities.
This event will be held on Saturday 22nd June 2019 from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. It will be held at the Springers Leisure Centre, Keysborough.
