Watford Museum is partnering with local charity People Not Borders and a local artist to commemorate 20 years of Refugee Week.
Refugee Week is the UK’s largest festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees. To mark this occasion, the museum is hosting free events from Thursday 21 to Saturday 23 June, between 9am and 5pm.
On Thursday and Friday there will be an amazing giant boat sculpture on display in the garden of the museum. Then on Saturday, there’ll be drop-in family activities and an evening talk from People Not Borders for adults to hear about the experience of volunteering, all for free!
There will also be a film screened throughout the whole weekend in the museum, exploring the refugee experience, created by Sheelagh Frew Crane. Visitors will also have the chance to purchase the book ‘I Am Me’ by Sue Hampton.
