Refugee Festival Scotland 2018

Friday 15 – Sunday 24 June 2018

Big thank you to all the community groups who got in touch about this year's Refugee Festival Scotland.

We're working through all the application forms and will get back to you by 28 March 2018.

Excited to hear about everyone's plans


This Year

Coordinated by Scottish Refugee Council, Refugee Festival Scotland is an annual Scotland-wide programme of arts, cultural, educational, heritage and sports events that bring refugee and local communities together in celebration of the contribution refugees make to the richness and vibrancy of life in Scotland and the welcome offered to them by local people.

It is the Year of Young People in Scotland. This year, Refugee Festival Scotland will celebrate the talents and potential of young people from the refugee community. The festival will provide a platform for them to claim their own identity and share their hopes and dreams for the future.

But we don’t want to leave anyone out. So we are also looking to the generations of refugees who have settled in Scotland, to share reflective stories of their experiences and cultural practices as young people.

If you have any questions about this form or you wish to discuss your application please contact Soizig on 0141 248 9799/
