18 Jun - 25 Jun

For the third year running, Southbank Centre and Counterpoints Arts come together to celebrate Refugee Week 2017. 

Join us as we celebrate the theme of Refugee Week, 'Our Shared Future', looking at how settled and newly-arrived communities have come together for generations to contribute to the fabric of the UK. Enjoy music, visual art and installations, workshops, and singing with artists from all over the world.
