Refugee Week is a UK wide programme of cultural and educational events which celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and aims to encourage better understanding between communities This year, from 16th to 25th June, we are on a mission to make Refugee Week 2008 the biggest and boldest one yet. During Refugee Week, hundreds of events exploring refugee experiences take place across the UK, ranging from big music festivals and art exhibitions to political debates and community events. Events are organised by anyone and everyone - charities, local governments, refugee community organisations, schools, faith groups, arts organisations and even you! It’s our birthday…spread the word! 2008 is the 10th anniversary of Refugee Week and to celebrate the UK team has produced a huge range of exciting Promotional Materials including banners, balloons, full colour calendars and badges. We have five fantastic T-shirt designs in different colours, sporting quotes by Benjamin Zephaniah, Margaret Mead, Ian McEwan and Maya Angelou. The T-shirts are made by American Apparel, a progressive LA based company that guarantees sweatshop free products and who are currently campaigning for immigration reform and speaking out for the human rights of immigrants!
