Travelling Words at The British Library

Celebrate Refugee Week with this free workshop at The British Library!

Join The British Library to celebrate Refugee Week with writer Jenneba Sie-Jalloh.

The Library’s wonderful archives inspire these fun and creative workshops using games, words, music and pictures to tell stories and explore our different pasts and shared futures.

Jenneba Sie-Jalloh is a writer, teacher and freelance educator.

Refugee Week takes place every year across the world in the week around World Refugee Day on the 20 June.

Drop in places are limited to 40 people per workshop and allocated on a first come, first served basis. This event also takes place at 14.00.
