2017 : Connect

Refugee Festival Scotland 2017 banner

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.”
