Refugee Week 2018 evaluation

‘Refugees and migrants carry with them some of the most important stories of our time. Refugee Week gives us all a chance to tell them.’ 

Over 650 events happened across the UK for Refugee Week 2018; more than 30,000 people Tweeted and media reach was in the tens of millions. Beyond the numbers, the artists, teachers, event organisers and participants involved have their own unique insights into this special festival. 

The evaluation of Refugee Week 2018, carried out by m2 consultants, captures some of these voices, as well as exploring the impact of Refugee Week and giving recommendations for the future (take a look too at this round up of some of your amazing responses to the 20 Simple Acts campaign).
