UEA University of Sanctuary 1 year anniversary event – 23.01.19

I am delighted to invite you and your colleagues to attend the UEA University of Sanctuary one year celebratory social event on 23 January 2019 from 4pm in the Julian Study Centre, UEA, Chancellors Drive, Norwich, NR4 7TJ. We will be celebrating and highlighting the work that has been undertaken by UEA staff and students to develop a sustainable culture of welcome for asylum seekers and refugees in the university, and in British society as a whole.

The event will include a drinks reception and a display of staff and student work relating to issues of sanctuary, followed by presentations from Pro Vice-Chancellor Neil Ward, local sanctuary seekers and Stephen Wordsworth, Executive Director of the Council for At Risk Academics.

To conclude the celebratory event,  LJ Hope Productions will be running an interactive theatrical live debate “Borders: Are Controls Necessary?” in the UEA Drama Studio from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

All are welcome. If you would like to attend please confirm your attendance via email.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me at M.Dutton@uea.ac.uk

With kind regards,

 Madeleine Dutton – Sanctuary Liaison Officer, School of International Development
