Refugee Week is Australia’s peak annual activity to inform the public about refugees and celebrate positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society. In observance of Refugee Week 2022, the Ethnic Council – collaboration with GOTAFE – will host Thon’s Long Walk from Sudan to Shepparton at the Harder Auditorium on Wednesday 22 June at 10:00 am.
Refugee Week 2022 Theme – 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 observance of Refugee Week 2020, the Ethnic Council – collaboration with GOTAFE – will host Thon’s Long Walk from Sudan to Shepparton at the Harder Auditorium on Wednesday 22 June at 10:00 am.
