Celebration, Arts, Refugees

Date: 22 June 2024
Time: 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Location: Alison Richard Building (Sidgwick Site), 7 West Road, Cambridge CB3 9DE

As part of Refugee Week, CamCRAG is collaborating with Cambridge University’s Refugee Hub on an exciting Festival of Arts, which will celebrate all that refugees bring to our communities.

The event will offer musical and dramatic performances throughout the day, films, and a sale of art. Intended as a family day, it will also include children’s entertainment, a raffle, a fashion display, food, drink and various stalls. 

Please come along with friends and family to celebrate everything that we gain and learn from refugees who settle in our communities.

We also need volunteers to help organise and run the day

  • to help set up, assist with stalls, and clear up
  • to suggest ideas for additional stalls and activities
  • to distribute publicity before the event, and to advertise it on the day (in the surrounding areas and in town)
  • to help organize raffle prizes ahead of the event
  • to be part of a small team organizing this event (several meetings of about an hour; a few responsibilities)

If you would like to help with this very special day in any way, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing both Liz (saintjohns@hotmail.com) and Gini (volunteer@camcrag.org.uk)
