Refugee Week 2019
The Migration Museum and Justice for Refugees SA warmly invites you to our Refugee Week event, ‘Journeys: Your story, My Story, Our Story’. Come prepared with a story about your journey to Australia that you could share and celebrate, fitting with this year’s theme for Refugee Week, ‘A World of Stories’.
You may have arrived to Australia in the last month, last 10 years, or you may want to share the story of your ancestors. As well as bringing something to represent your journey – a poem, song, ornament or otherwise – we ask if there has been anyone in your community who has been a part of your journey you can invite to share your story together.
You will then both have the opportunity to contribute to a piece of artwork, led by a talented local Aboriginal artist. This is a unique way to reflect on your own journey and connect with the journeys of others in a creative and meaningful way.
If you do not wish to share your story, you are still more than welcome to join us and be part of the activities. Please RSVP to Madelena at MBendo@History.sa.gov.au, with your name and the number of places you would like to reserve, and if you’re joining us to share your story or listen to others. Free entry, RSVP essential. Afternoon tea provided.
