About this event
For World Refugee Day, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, in partnership with the Kennedy Center and One Journey Festival, presents live music featuring Mélat and Cesar Orozco & Kamarata Jazz. This weekend celebrates the courage and resilience of people who have been forced to flee their homes due to war, persecution, and violence. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, refugees and displaced people have stepped up and continue to contribute to a stronger, safer, and more vibrant world. One Journey is a growing coalition that aims to change the narrative about refugees by celebrating their talents and stories through the common languages of humanity: music, dance, storytelling, art, technology, food, and sports. This mission of celebration and connection comes to the REACH with a global marketplace, film screening, and dance and yoga instruction, all curated for three days of fun and inspiration.
