Refugee Week 2022 – Healing
Refugee Week is Australia’s peak annual activity to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society.
The Refugee Week theme in 2022 is Healing. Australia and the rest of the world have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hit the reset button on how we behave towards one another. The importance of human connections has been underscored by the pandemic and such lessons can help us in so many ways.
Mainstream and refugee communities alike can draw upon shared hardship to heal wounds, to learn from each other and to move forward. Healing can occur through storytelling, through community and also through realisation of our intrinsic interconnectedness as individuals.
In 2022, they encourage organisations and individuals to utilise their website for Refugee Week resources and events that will facilitate this healing and subsequent rejuvenation.
Let us make 2022 much more than just a footnote in the pandemic years, let us heal together and emerge a more fulfilled and connected society.
The Refugee Council of Australia make a number of resources available to the public who wish to join in celebrating Refugee Week each year. These include resources you can use if you are organising your own event, or simply if you want to learn more about the refugee experience.
Originally celebrated in 1986, Refugee Week coincides with World Refugee Day (20 June).
For more information and all enquiries please visit the Refugee Week website or follow their Facebook page.
