On Saturday 22nd June the Irish Refugee Council is hosting a fundraising evening – a medley of entertainment featuring music, prose, art and poetry. The event, which will be held at the Unitarian Church on Stephen’s Green, will come at the end of a week of activities across Ireland and beyond marking World Refugee Day which is on June 20th.
A variety of artists from the Nigerian, Iranian and Sierra Leonean communities among others, and from Ireland, along with a number of young people performing their own composition with headliner Ben Okafor will take the stage.
Tickets are €20 with a limited number available to students and the low-waged at a reduced price of €10. Funds raised will go towards supporting the work of the Irish Refugee Council and in particular, our work with young people seeking asylum in Ireland.
The event will commence at 7.30pm and all are welcome.
