"Imagine Oxfordshire" with Refugee Resource
On Thursday 18 June 2020, we held an online webinar to mark Refugee Week, where we shared insights from our staff, volunteers, clients and supporters about refugee experiences in Oxfordshire. We also shared creative submissions related to this year’s theme of ‘imagine’ - including artwork, stories and poetry. Watch a recording of the video below or via our YouTube channel.
