Refugee Week 17th – 22nd June 2019

Following the success of 2018’s Refugee Week Celebration Event ARC will once again be hosting an event for the whole community at the end of Refugee Week 2019 which will showcase and share the contributions, creativity and resilience of local refugees.

This free community event is open to anyone who would like to attend.

The theme for this year’s Refugee Week is You, me and those who came before #Generations.

The event will include a marketplace that reflects the wide range of cultures in Stockton-on-Tees with a variety of stalls showcasing items for sale, services and opportunities for refugees to get involved. Local refugees and those that work with them are invited to submit their interest in becoming a stall holder at this year’s event.

Expressions of interest should include:

  • A brief description of who you are
  • What you intend to sell or display
  • How your stall fits the theme of You, me and those who came before #Generations and contributed to promoting the positive impact that refugees have on the local community.

Expressions of interest should be submitted to ARC’s Community Event and Engagement Co-ordinator, Grace Allen, at grace.allen@arconline.co.uk by Monday 29th April, 10:00am.

Stalls are free of charge but the capacity is limited so priority will be given to those stalls which best fit the brief. Successful applicant will be contacted by Friday 10th May.

This event is supported by Stockton Borough Council, ARC, Catalyst and Stockton Riverside College.
