This World Refugee Day event is part of a series of events Nasc are organising for World Refugee Week.  In collaboration with UNHCR Ireland, we will be hosting a UNHCR refugee tent at Nasc, where visitors can experience the type of temporary shelter refugees live in while staying in UNHCR camps around the world.

‘One Thing’ Art Project

Inside the tent, we will also be exhibiting our ‘One Thing’ art project, which will display photos and words representing the one thing you would bring with you if you were forced to flee your home. To find out more about the project and how to contribute, click here.
