STAR are hosting a night to celebrate and embrace the cultures of several refugee source countries as our last event of the semester! Come and join us in Teviot Underground for a night of food, dance and fun!

STAR are fundraising for the Refugee Survival Trust, who work within Edinburgh and Glasgow to aid asylum seekers and refugees by providing grants to help financially at extremely turbulent and isolating times.

LINE-UP (TBC):

- Arabic poetry, recited by Marwa Mouazen;
- Govend, in collaboration with Kurdsoc;
- Seeds of Thought: spokenword and live music;
- Live performance of Senegalese music;
- Arabic Bellydancing to conclude
- DJ set until closure

WE WILL PROVIDE SOME DELICIOUS FOOD:

-Falafel with bread, salad and Babaganush
-Traditional "Malah N'imia" Sudanese Soup
