You Are Here: Refugee Week

The ‘You Are Here’ project, managed by Tees Valley Arts and currently funded primarily by the Home Office has been working across the Tees Valley with refugees and people seeking asylum for the past four years.

Although the Tees Valley boroughs are not running a Refugee Week this year, there will still be two celebratory events thanks to Tees Valley Arts, North of England Refugee Service, Erimus Housing and African Arts Association.

Please feel free to come along, boogie and welcome the presence of yet more colour and variety in the Tees Valley !
