#Migration and the #refugee crisis continue to dominate the #political agenda causing fear, #populist rhetoric, hatred and division in our communities. A new and positive narrative is emerging to counteract the disunity, mistrust and #conflict in our nation. Come and celebrate #WorldRefugeeDay with our inspirational panellist of speakers in a joint effort to respond creatively to the wider debate. Each one of us can play a part in changing the narrative. Speakers at this event will include:
Ulrike Schmidt, Amnesty International UK, Country Coordinator for Eastern and Central Europe
Marguerite Horner, International Artist
Ben Magnolis, Co-founder and Executive Director of The Grange
Gibril Faal OBE, Director of Africa-Europe Diaspora Development Platform (ADEPT)
There will be special Iftar dinner to celebrate the last days of #Ramadan where both Muslim and non-Muslim friends will break bread together. There will be #music from one of the most prominent African artists on the world stage, Jean Paul Samputu. He is a #peaceactivist travelling the world to spread the message of forgiveness and reconciliation through music.
