Coordinated by Scottish Refugee Council, Refugee Festival Scotland is an annual Scotland-wide programme of arts, cultural, educational, heritage and sport events that brings refugee and local communities across Scotland together.
2018: Friday 15th – Saturday 24th June
2018 is the Year of Young People in Scotland.
This year, Refugee Festival Scotland will celebrate the talents and potential of young people from the refugee community. The festival will provide a platform for them to claim their own identity and share their hopes and dreams for the future.
2017 : Connect
In 2017 we are using the theme Connect to encourage people from all walks of Scottish society to connect with people who have come here seeking refugee protection. These New Scots are our neighbours, colleagues, classmates and friends.
The festival will explore the different actions we can take to build and strengthen connections between local communities and with the new Scots rebuilding their lives here.”
