How Has Manchester Welcomed Refugees?
Thu 30 June 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Do you have a burning question about the role we’ve played in supporting refugees? Are you interested in learning how to make Greater Manchester a more welcoming place?
Expert speakers from refugee support organisations, the refugee community and academia will be joined by public figures to discuss how our great city has provided a place of safety for people fleeing persecution over the decades.
This event forms part of Greater Manchester’s Refugee Week celebrations. Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities.
