Come to the Museum for a day of performances, films and drop-in workshops to celebrate Refugee Week.

As part of Refugee Week (19–25 June 2017), the British Museum is collaborating with Counterpoints Arts to organise a special day at the Museum. Refugee Week is organised by Counterpoints Arts as part of their mission to engage with refugee and migrant experiences through arts and cultural programmes.

The theme of this year’s Refugee Week is ‘Different pasts, shared future'. You are invited to get involved and find out about the positive contribution refugees have made and continue to make to the UK.
