This Refugee Week 2024 We Dare to Dream!

Like every year, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in the UK proudly supports Refugee Week, a vibrant nationwide program of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the valuable and unique contributions of refugees and migrants.  

This year's theme, "Our Home”, celebrates what home means to each of us, from the places we live in to the sense of home we can find in food, landscapes, music or other arts. Our home is global, interconnected by shared cultures, knowledge and resources that bring hope to the future. 

During this Refugee (17–23 June), join of the event hosted or supported by IOM UK in collaboration with partners across the country.
