We Cannot Walk Alone

The theme for Refugee Week 2021, 'We Cannot Walk Alone', comes from a moment in Martin Luther King's historic 'I have a dream' speech when he turns his attention to the White people who have joined the movement for equal rights. 

"They have come to realise that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom," he says. "We cannot walk alone."

Refugee Week 2021 is an invitation to extend your hand to someone new. Someone who is outside your current circle, has had an experience you haven't, or is fighting for a cause you aren't yet involved in.

Help us make Refugee Week 2021 a bold, collective act of reaching out; a space for us all to listen, to exchange and connect. To find out what we can learn from each other, and what we can build together.

You can see information about Journeys Festival International Programme below.

We look forward to celebrating Refugee Week 2021 with you as 'We Cannot Walk Alone".

Simple Acts

For Refugee Week 2021 (14-20 June) we’re inviting you to do one or more of these eight Simple Acts, inspired by the theme ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’.

Simple Acts are everyday actions we can all do to stand with refugees and make new connections in our communities.

Whether you build your own event or activity around a Simple Act or simply take part during the week itself, you’ll be part of a movement of people everywhere taking small steps to create a big change. Join us!
