June Highlights: Celebrating Refugee Week + MENA-Inspired Events

Looking through My Curious Inbox, one important week-long occurrence will be the celebrations connected to Refugee Week, marking its 20th anniversary this year. A worldwide phenomenon, Refugee Week was established to counter negative narratives often encountered in mainstream media and within society towards refugees and asylum-seekers, by highlighting their positive contributions made to host communities. 

In London, there will be hundreds of events throughout Refugee Week (18-24 June) so below are just my top three that are MENA-connected.
