Refugee Festival Scotland 2017

We are excited to be part of Refugee Festival Scotland 2017!

This year’s Festival runs from 20 June to 2 July and offers art, music, theatre, food and drink and community and family events all around the country.

The Welcoming is offering a special edition of Arabic Cafe on Monday 26 June. This is a chance to visit the Welcoming, meet people from around the world, connect with Arabic culture and celebrate the contribution of newcomers to Scotland.

We are also partnering with Edinburgh City of Sanctuary, Re-Act, Refugee Action Scotland and Ceilidh Collective to host ‘Ceilidh Connections: celebrating Edinburgh as a welcoming city‘. We are looking forward to a fantastic evening of dancing, music and food to celebrate the many people, places, initiatives and organisations that make Edinburgh a welcoming city for people seeking sanctuary. Hope to see you there!
