Refugee Festival Scotland: Dundee Launch Day!

On Monday 24th June, our Dundee office held a fun-filled family celebration to launch #RefugeeFestScot in the city.

The day began with speeches by our CEO Sabir Zazai, Dundee City Housing Manager David Simpson and Steeple Church Minister Rev. Robert Calvert. These were followed by a short film about our peer volunteers in Dundee, who were then presented with certificates for their achievements by Sabir.

We were then entertained with traditional Iranian music by Musicians in Exile, before a joyous collaboration with some of our Dundee peer volunteers.

The afternoon ended with a fine selection of food prepared by our volunteers, and a frenetic dabke to close.

Don’t miss #RefugeeFestScot events taking place throughout the week at Steeple Church, the V&A and across Dundee: Dundee RFS Programme
