Event description

Description

We are pleased to invite you to participate in Once Upon A Refugee - a community education event celebrating the experience and contributions of refugees, hosted by North York Community House.

In recognition of Refugee Awareness Month, North York Community House will present an interactive, multi-media presentation on Wednesday, April 24th, 2019, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., at York Woods Library Theater, 1785 Finch Ave W, North York.

This second annual event follows on our highly successful Once Upon a Refugee celebration held last April and will include theatrical presentations, music and dance by refugees to Canada, digital stories, and refreshments.

As a community organization that works extensively with refugees, we believe it is important to play an active role in highlighting the challenges that refugees have faced as well as the strengths, accomplishments, and contributions of refugees in Canada.

We would love for you to join us.

Please note:

  • Refreshments will be served from 6:00 - 6:45 pm. The program will begin at 6:45 pm.

  • We have limited childcare available for children between the ages of 2 - 12yrs. Please register children who will be requiring childcare during the event. Due to space restrictions, we will only be able to take a small number of children for childcare.

This is a free event. If you would like to make a contribution to our work please donate here: https://www.nych.ca/donations
