BRASS's Refugee Week Steering Group has met for its first Refugee Week 2020 meeting this week!
Refugee Week this year, is 15th-21st June 2020 and the theme is ‘Imagine’. Because when things feel stuck; when the old ways of doing things are no longer working, that’s what we need to do.
Imagine - to picture something you can’t currently see. To step beyond the current moment, and perceive something different. Rather than being a flight away from reality, imagination is sometimes the best response to it – the only way to get us somewhere new.
Maybe you’ll imagine a future where we’ve found new ways to care for our planet, connect across borders or protect human life.
Or perhaps you’ll imagine what it’s like to have to leave your family behind, or what your hometown might look like to someone walking its streets for the first time.
You can get involved by taking part in a Refugee Week event or activity, or doing one of our Refugee Week 2020 Simple Acts (coming soon).
However you respond, we hope you’ll join us in an act of collective imagining and help make Refugee Week 2020 the biggest, loudest and most creative Refugee Week yet.
