The library events will vary in content
from photographic exhibitions and an exhibition showing people’s kindness to
refugees through to storytelling workshops and a bridge building workshop.
Refugee Week takes
place every year across the world around World Refugee Day on the 20 June. This year the
organisers are inviting everyone to do one (or more!) of 20 Simple Acts – one
for each year of Refugee Week. Simple Acts are things everyone can do to show
support for refugees and anyone can take part in Simple Acts; you can find out
more on the Refugee Week website.
Jim O’Hagan, Libraries
NI Chief Executive said:
“Libraries NI is proud
to be part of the Refugee Week 20 year celebrations and we will continue to
work with other government organisations to help support refugees.
“Libraries provide a
safe place for people to connect with others, with learning and with cultural
experiences through events and through books. These events will help people
gain a brief insight into the plight for many whilst also building essential
bridges of support in local communities.”
