Migrants Organise are holding a Great Get Together on Saturday 17th June 2017 to celebrate diversity and promote a message of welcome and inclusiveness.

Migrants Organise are holding a Great Get Together on Saturday 17th June 2017 to celebrate diversity and promote a message of welcome and inclusiveness. The event brings together migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers and the residents of Kensington & Chelsea and beyond, for an afternoon of shared food, live music and spoken word, a street quiz and arts and craft activities.

We will also be joined by students, families and teachers from two international schools in west London (Southbank International and International School of London), established migrant communities in the area and Refugee Welcome campaigners based in the Kensington & Chelsea and neighbouring boroughs.

This is a unique opportunity to get to know each other, share stories and hang out together. Let us celebrate our differences, togetherness and the shared hopes that sustain our communities.

  • Activities planned for the day include:
  • Live music and spoken word
  • Picnic food - please bring food to share!
  • Street Quiz (knowledge of the area)
  • Kids' activities (arts and crafts)
  • Film Screenings by Refugees Welcome and Migrants Organise Youth Group

The event is part of The Great Get Together a series of nationwide events celebrating Community and inspired by Jo Cox, who believed that ‘we are far more united and have #MoreInCommon than that which divides us’. Thousands of events will take place across the country on the weekend of 17th-18th June to honour her memory and promote unity.

The event is free to attend but please book your tickets via the Eventbrite page.
