Refugee week

The 2024 Refugee Week theme is Finding Freedom through Family. The theme aims to highlight aspects of the refugee experience and help the broader community to understand what it is like to be a refugee. The theme unites individuals, communities and organisations from many different backgrounds behind a common cause. The common theme is a reminder that, regardless of our differences, we all share a common humanity.

Each year, City of Whittlesea celebrates the Refugee week and welcomes people of diverse backgrounds who have come from far and wide.

We invite the community to come celebrate Refugee week with us across the municipality. Check out the events below and get involved.

Refugee Week 2024 will be celebrated across the country from Sunday 16 June to Saturday 23 June.
