Redfern’s premier creative hub 107 Projects will be home to Refugee Week events as part of the New Beginnings: Refugee Arts & Culture Festival.

The New Beginnings Festival for Refugee Week will feature an Art Exhibition of works by artists and craftpeople from asylum seeker and refugee backgrounds. The exhibition is curated by Denise Thwaites. Participating artists will be announced soon!

The festival will also feature Sydney Stories – a night of film shorts created by newly arrived refugees with the support of CuriousWorks artists – and Community Kouzina, an installation by Eleni Christou, highlighting the role of food in shaping identity while adapting to a new social and cultural environment.

All events are free of charge!
