Refugee Week 2021: We cannot walk alone

Refugee Week 2021 is 14-20 June – and this year we’re extending the celebrations into July. Anyone can get involved by organising or taking part in an event or activity.

Refugee Week is a UK-wide programme of arts, cultural and educational activities to celebrate the contribution of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK and nourish connections between communities.

The theme for 2021 is ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’, inspired by a quote from Martin Luther King’s iconic ‘I have a dream’ speech in which he explains that the struggle for rights and respect transcends race. This theme asks us to consider our interconnectedness – that the wellbeing of each of us depends on the welfare of others.
