We are delighted to reveal the 2017 Refugee Week poster image!
This year’s poster features Hani Abdile and Ravi Prasad from Sydney café Parliament on King. Ravi set up the café in his front room to train people seeking asylum and refugees to work in hospitality, and Hani- a performance poet and author from Somalia who is just 22 years old- works there on weekends.
Ravi and Hani are just one part of the incredible contribution that people from refugee backgrounds make to the diverse fabric of Australia.
