Refugee Festival Scotland 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 when they seek safety here. From Thursday 20 – Sunday 30 June 2019, the festival offers people from different backgrounds the chance to meet and get to know each other better.

This year, the theme of Refugee Festival Scotland is Making Art, Making Home. The theme focuses on the talent, creativity and resilience of New Scots artists and community groups.

Arts, culture and sport are important in creating spaces for old and new Scots to meet and learn more about each other, breaking down barriers and laying new foundations of respect, solidarity and friendship.

Refugee Festival Scotland is produced and coordinated by Scottish Refugee Council, an independent charity dedicated to providing advice and information to people seeking refugee protection in Scotland.
