Wichita’s International Rescue Committee and Episcopal Migration Ministries are hosting a celebration for World Refugee Day, which was started by the United Nations and is celebrated worldwide.
This year’s festival showcases an art exhibit called “#WithRefugees” created by refugees who resettled in Wichita. The festival will also include dance, music, children’s activities and food.
“We want to lift up the voices of the refugees that have resettled here in Wichita,” said Marla Schmidt, field office director of the Episcopal Migration Ministries.
The celebration will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Wichita State University’s Shiftspace Gallery, 416 S. Commerce, Suite 102. The event is free and open to the public.
