As part of Refugee Week, BBC Radio Norfolk allowed us to ‘take over’ the airwaves for a 3 hour special programme, focussing on why Refugee Week exists and looking at some of the events going on during the week.
The running order included in the first hour, an introduction to Norwich City of Sanctuary and some of our Refugee Week events, such as our Art on the Railings exhibition outside the Forum. Presenter, Amy Nomvula, was also joined by our Schools of Sanctuary lead, Jake Rose-Brown, who talked about our Day of Welcome involving over 124 local schools.
In the second hour, guests included Caitlin Howells from Field of Joy in Reepham and Vanessa Trevelyan from Friends of Kett’s Heights, who are both looking into becoming Gardens of Sanctuary with us, as part of our new Green Map of Norwich.
Finally, in the third hour, Marie-Lyse Numuhosa, an active member of our Steering Group and survivor of the Rwandan genocide, shared the story of how she came to make Norwich her home.
