Celebrating refugee heritage and culture

19 June 2017 - 25 June 2017 , 10:00 to 17:00
Oriental Museum

A display in our West Asian gallery, to celebrate Refugee Week around the UK.

Explore a new display of Syrian and Near-Eastern objects, including jewellery, ceramics, and glassware. These objects have been interpreted by the local Syrian refugee community, and the display celebrates their unique viewpoints.

Also on display will be a Hmong story cloth made using the traditional techniques of the Hmong people, who were displaced from their homes during the Vietnam War.
