The Refugee Council of Australia works with agencies around the country to coordinate Refugee Week, a national celebration held each year since 1986. In 2010 Refugee week will be held from Sunday June 20 June 26th 2010.
SBS has thrown its support behind Refugee Week 2010 with a multi-platform effort to draw attention to the plight of refugees in Australia. Partnering with the Refugee Council of Australia, SBS will support Refugee Week with thought-provoking content across all its platforms: SBS ONE, SBS TWO, Online and SBS Radio.
This website explores the lives of refugees in Australia over time - they first told us their stories up to 25 years ago. Now we tracked them down to find out what happened since.
SBS Radio programmes will feature interviews in some 20 languages with former refugees throughout Refugee Week 2010.
