The Refugee Council of Australia make a number of resources available to the public who wish to join us in celebrating Refugee Week each year. These include resources you can use if you are organising your own event, or simply if you want to learn more about the refugee experience.
In 2020, Refugee Week will be going online, and so we have created extra resources to help you plan activities you can do to mark the week. Whether or not we’re still in lockdown come June, our Refugee Week team will be bringing you an awesome line-up so that you can join the celebrations from your own home. You can find lots of great ideas of how to get involved in Refugee Week on our website – films, podcasts, poems, videos, songs, and more below!
If you have resources that you think others could use, perhaps you have written a song, a poem, or just know of a great film others should watch, then please email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add them to this page as well as share them on social media.
We are running our usual Events Calendar, but of course, things will be a little different. Register your event here if you want others to RSVP to it – it can be online or in-person.
Are you looking for a way to engage with your students, colleagues, friends or family? Hearing directly from someone who has had a refugee experience is by far the most compelling way for people to learn about refugee issues
CORE Community Services invites you to celebrate Refugee Week 2020: “The Year of Welcome” with us, and our 5 inspirational leaders. Refugee Week allows us as a Nation to celebrate the contribution, resilience and diversity of newly arrived and emerging communities.
