“ICAF (International Community Arts Festival) wishes to express their support for Refugee Week Greece as a festival, a community hub, and a movement that significantly contributes towards the power of arts and culture for integration and community cohesion, especially for communities often underrepresented and denied platforms within our traditional societal structures. 

The work of Refugee Week Greece, especially their library-based projects, provides space for exchange, healing and support, as well as a platform for communities to feel recognised and celebrated for their contribution within society. The creation of such spaces are vital for social and community cohesion, and to tackle the increasing individualisation and segregation in society.

The effects of Refugee Week Greece and the spaces provided will have a long lasting impact not just for the communities directly involved, but for all of those who attend the festival programming.”
