“To mark Refugee Week 2022, Asylum Welcome is working in conjunction with Oxford’s thriving network of Refugee Community Organisations to host an all-day bazaar in the grounds of Magdalen College School. Community organisations including the Oxford North African Community, Oxford Sudanese Supplementary School, Syrian Sisters, Iraqi Women Art and War (IWAW), Oxford Asian Women’s Voice, BK LUWO Group and Refugee Resource Women’s Group will sell food and other goods, share art and music, and raise awareness about the valuable work each group undertakes in our community.
In the afternoon, students from MCS and St. Edward’s School will host a student-led discussion. This will be followed by a panel chaired by BBC Political Correspondent Rob Watson, with guests including MP Layla Moran, Afghan children’s rights activist Freshta Karim and Jan Royall, Principal of Somerville College (one of Oxford University’s two Colleges of Sanctuary). As the evening draws on, we will enjoy a performance by Syrian musician Maya Youssef.
Free entry and open to all.”
