This year, the annual Refugee Festival Scotland, organised by the Scottish Refugee Council, will take place between the 20th and 30th of June. It celebrates the contribution refugee communities make to life in Scotland – the food and drink, music and poetry, art, languages and ideas that people bring with them. The theme of this year's festival is Making Art, Making Home, focusing on the talent, creativity and resilience of New Scots artists and community groups. Through creating spaces where old and New Scots can meet and learn more about each other, breaking down barriers and laying new foundations of respect, solidarity and friendship.

The programme is available online and can be found here.
