Refugee Welcome Zone
The City of Adelaide celebrates the wonderful cultural diversity that refugees and asylum seekers bring to our community and the tremendous contributions refugees have made to Australian society in the fields of medicine, science, engineering, sport, education and the arts.
In August 2014 the City of Adelaide was declared a Refugee Welcome Zone, welcoming refugees and asylum seekers and acknowledging the difficult journey men, women and children make to Australia to seek our protection.
Refugee Week is Australia's annual campaign to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions they make to Australian society.
Every year, the City of Adelaide celebrates Refugee Week with a range of free activities in our Community Centres which bring the local community together to embrace the stories of refugees and acknowledge their contribution.Back to Top
