Sun 2nd July – “Welcome Refugees with Open Arms”
July 2, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Two Events on Sunday 2 July 2017:
Welcome Refugees with Open Arms – Chester Town Hall Square – 12.00 to 14.00
Amnesty International is holding an event to encourage support and understanding of the refugee situation. This is a particularly timely event as Chester is currently welcoming several refugee families to the area. Come and lend your support, visit our stall and have your photo taken with the giant yellow welcome arms!
The I Welcome Photo Exhibition, St. Anselms Chapel (access off Abbey Square), Chester Cathedral – from 12.30pm
A Magnum Photos exhibition in association with Amnesty International. The 30 evocative panels in the I Welcome exhibition tell a big story – ‘the global refugee crisis’. These few words encompass millions and millions of human lives. People of all ages, faiths and walks of life. Mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, grandchildren, friends.
