Universities and Colleges of Sanctuary workshop – 23rd June 2022
Belfast City of Sanctuary ran an enlightening and thought-provoking seminar and workshop at Belfast Met, in partnership with Belfast Met and supported by The National Lottery Community Fund. It was particularly great to have the participation of the University of Ulster, Belfast Met staff and students, Department for the Economy Policy and some of the key community and voluntary sector representatives who are advocating on behalf of students at grass-roots level.
We had followed the advice sought by the UoS and CoS subgroup as the ideal date for the seminar – end of June 2022, taking the opportunity to coincide with Refugee Week (20 to 26th June) – with the theme ‘Healing’.
There were presentations from Tere McBurney and Harry Robinson, Huw Hides and Maryam Taher.
Feedback from those who attended was highly positive.
We will build on this.
