RED DEER, ALBERTA, T4N 2L6, CANADA 

We are excited to invite you to attend our free World Refugee Day events on June 20th with various activities at the HUB, the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery, and Festival Hall. These free events will offer opportunities to the community to engage with newcomers who arrived in Red Deer and area under refugee status and for us to learn from each other. Our hope is that this will lead to a more welcoming and inclusive community, embracing of the diversity which has grown in Red Deer, to affect positive change for refugees globally and locally.
