Refugee Week @ Lithgow Library

Refugee Week 2018 from 17-23 June is a time when Australia celebrates the contribution of those who have come to Australia as refugees and people seeking asylum.

“Like the rest of our country, Lithgow has benefitted and grown from the contributions of refugees and people seeking asylum coming and making a new home here in our community,” said Lithgow Mayor Stephen Lesslie. “Refugee Week is an opportunity to learn more about the stories of our refugee community and to understand the lives and struggles and joy of some of our newest Australians.”

Throughout Refugee Week, in the community space at Lithgow Library, there will be a screening of a series of rolling film clips from the Red Cross and Amnesty International highlighting issues refugees face. This film will be playing on a loop all week so you can drop in to the Library and watch all or part of it at a time that suits you.

On Wednesday 20 June, World Refugee Day, there will be an information session presented by the Red Cross called “What’s the real situation faced by people seeking asylum?”. This session will be at Lithgow Library from 2.00pm. Topics covered include: who are people seeking asylum; what situations do they face; and what does Australia have to do with it? Come, join the conversation and participate in an engaging workshop.

There will also be an art exhibition during the month of June that has been organised by the local LASAR action group (Lithgow Asylum Seeker and Refugee Support Group).

These events are all free at Lithgow Library – no bookings are required, everyone is welcome to attend.
