Monday sees the start of the 20th Refugee Week and this year you are asked to take part by doing one or more of 20 simple acts.

Simple Acts are simple things everyone can do to show support for refugees, find out more about refugee experiences and make new connections in their communities. For example you mightchoose to learn a few words in another language or find out 5 facts about refugees that you can share with your friends.  Find out more about 20 Simple Acts at


Refugee Week is a UK-wide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities.

“Objects of Meaning Exhibition at Ty Pawb”

Alternatively  for your simple act you may want to visit Ty Pawb to view the “Objects of Meaning” photographic exhibition which will be on display throughout Refugee week. This powerful exhibition shows a series of photographs of refugees and asylum seekers here in Wrexham holding an object that has some personal significance to them and helps to tell the story of their exile.
