Bristol Refugee Festival's Annual City Of Sanctuary flagship event will take place once again in Queens Square. Their partner organisation LARA (Lorraine Ayensu Refugee Arts) has a great line up for the stage and there will be trade and information stalls, a kids area, sports and games to keep the whole family entertained. Delicious hot food from Moveable Feast and Refugee Woman of Bristol and a wonderful selection of tea and cakes supplied by Bristol Refugee Rights will be available to buy.
Women Talking is safe space for women to speak and be heard, to improve intercultural awareness and unpick some of the trickier conversations that we are often scared to speak about.
- The Women's stories of how they have survived and hopes for the future.
- How to volunteer with refugee groups.
- What is needed in Bristol.
- The positives about living in Bristol.
We’re launching a very much needed event AS PART OF THE Bristol pride month , where we invite people to listen to and discuss LGBTQ+ related issues in “cross culture communities” within a friendly and safe panel discussion followed by a Q&A.
As part of Interculture’s hugely successful Women Talking Series, we are bringing you Refugee Women Talking, a unique opportunity to hear women from refugee backgrounds tell their stories.There will be the opportunity to ask questions In this interactive panel discussion. Our aims are : to encourage people to ask questions directly to Refugee women and not just talk about them/ make assumptions, create safe spaces to bring people together to break down perceived cultural barriers, to encourage people to find a platform so they can make their voices heard.
In 2019 we will be running a series of events around Being Mixed Race. Collaborating with Ujima Radio, The Wonder Club, Malcolm X centre, among others, we hope to begin the conversation that so often gets missed out.
‘Mixed Race’ is the largest growing demographic in Bristol, and the UK. As our cultures blend and mix in all kinds of ways, what effect does this have on the individual from a multi-heritage background? How do we identify ourselves? How do others identify us? How can we support our children better?
We took over Hamilton House in the heart of Stokes Croft, for two days of community outreach and engagement through our "I’m Interculture" photo campaign. We had an overwhelming positive response from people, who were very happy to drop by and have a chat and have their photos taken. We received a lot of feedback and covered a wide range of topics.
This session was part of the Festival of solutions: It's all about the women. We chose hair and skin as our second in the series , because we all have skin and hair and have something to say about it. So we can have an amusing conversation about hair disasters, and sunburn but at the same time we can discuss the deeper isues around lighter skin being seen as more socailly acceptable.
We are very excited about our Women Talking Series. After a hugely successful talk back in September it was clear that we needed to keep going with this! Women Talking is a physical space for women to speak and be heard, to improve intercultural awareness and a safe space to unpick some of the trickier conversations that we are often scared to speak about.
A record number of anti-Muslim attacks and incidents of abuse were reported last year, with women disproportionately targeted by mostly male teenage perpetrators, the monitoring group Tell Mama has said. In its annual report, the group noted a surge in Islamophobic attacks, with 1,201 verified reports submitted in 2017, a rise of 26% on the year before and the highest number since it began recording incidents.
