Refugee Week 2017

Refugee Week 18-24 June 2017

People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to attend a series of community events to celebrate Refugee Week from Sunday 18 June to Saturday 24 June.

Events include a charity concert to celebrate World Refugee Day, film screenings and the Refugee Week Forum to continue the conversation on how local community and service providers can work together to welcome refugees.

Refugee Week has been an annual event in Australia since 1980 to celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society.

Along with World Refugee Day on Wednesday 20 June, it provides a forum to focus attention on the journey of refugees, as well as their determination and will to survive.
Rural Australians for Refugees Castlemaine developed the program in partnership with Council. The program of events is supported by Castlemaine Goldfields Library, Australian Red Cross and Anglican Church Castlemaine.

Download the program of events or pick up a copy at various locations across the shire including the Civic Centre, Castlemaine District and Community Health, Castlemaine and Maldon Visitor Information Centres and Castlemaine Library.

Council committed to being a Refugee Welcome Zone in 2014. Refugee Welcome Zones are an initiative of the Refugee Council of Australia to uphold human rights, demonstrate compassion, and enhance cultural and religious diversity in the community.

For more information contact Beverley Campbell on 0403 895 652 or Council on 5471 1700.
