Refugee Week 2024 

This years Refugee Week took place from 17 to 23 June. The theme for this year was 'Our Home', and encourages everyone to explore what Our Home means to them. Our Programme was held at Newcastle University, Dance City and ARC Stockton.

We were excited to share what we had been creating with a group with lived refugee experience at St Peter's Church, our Freeflow Creativity Cafe, WERS (West End Refugee Service), and Skimstone Arts associate artists Shaho Omar. Working alongside different communities brought together a collaborative and diverse programme for Refugee Week 2024.
