Refugee Week 2019

17th - 23rd June
Refugee Week 2019

Different pasts, shared future

DICE is pleased to be part of the University of Sanctuary at Leicester, which is proud to present Refugee Week.

This is part of the UK’s largest festival celebrating the contribution of refugees to British society through a programme of arts, culture and education.

It is held focused around World Refugee Day on 20 June 2019. The festival highlights the importance and benefits of sanctuary to those who seek it, as well as to those who provide sanctuary. We are proud of our status as one of only nine Universities of Sanctuary in the UK and of the staff and students who support this initiative. We recognise the ways in which refugees and asylum seekers can enrich our institution and we are committed to providing support and a genuine welcome.

As a University of Sanctuary, we provide a range of opportunities, not only for those who seek refuge in Leicester, but also for staff and students across campus to contribute to the provision of a welcoming and supportive environment. Take a look at the video below to see how this commitment is transforming lives.
