Refugee Week Online Exhibition
The 15 – 21 June 2020 is Refugee Week, a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees. Through a programme of arts, cultural and educational events alongside media and creative campaigns, Refugee Week brings about positive encounters between communities, helping them to connect and learn from each other, and promoting a culture of welcome. The Falmouth and Penryn community is already celebrating its own positive encounters as in December 2019 a refugee family from Syria was welcomed to the area with the support of Falmouth and Penryn Welcome Refugee Families. The family are settling in really well and the community have shown extraordinary welcome and support.
