Refugee Week was a unique opportunity to discover and celebrate the contributions refugees bring to the UK.

During Refugee Week loads of events take place across the UK, all of which explore refugee experiences. Whatever you’re into – be it arts, music, food or just meeting people in your local area – Refugee Week will have an event for you.

This year is the 60th anniversary of the Refugee Convention. In order to mark the occasion and link it to Refugee Week 2011, Refugee Week theme for this year will be 60 Years of Contribution.

Refugee Week are currently collecting stories and case studies about the contributions that refugees have made to Britain over the last 60 years. If you have any interesting stories or photos on this subject to share, they’d very much like to hear from you!
